12:23 PM ET 03.06 | What Bill Belichick has done in New England is nothing shy of remarkable. The Patriots have dominated the AFC since Belichick anointed Tom Brady as his starting quarterback in 2001. For all of Belichick's success, the Patriots have failed to do one thing under his tenure -- develop wide receivers. Aside from Deion Branch and David Givens, Belichick's list of drafted wide receivers is uninspiring at best, and it's why the Patriots need to re-sign free agent Wes Welker.

I'm sure Brady's in his ear.

It is odd that the Pats never made it a priority to draft a top WR prospect with their first round picks. But hard to argue that they have not been successful. Just a different way of going about it I suppose.

The Pats do need him more than he needs them, for sure.

I can not blame him 1 bit for testing the open market.

My guess is Kraft is low balling him and he will not have it, especially since this is his last contract.

If I am Wes, I am looking for my deal to average the Top 6 WR's in football recent deals...he will find a good home somewhere, and not with a scrub team either.
