In Response to Re: Ben Tate?
[QUOTE]I think Tate would be a good fit here. Houston already turned down the Browns on Tate and said they wouldn't even consider it unless a 1st was involved. Might be a dream i know. i just think Welker is going to hold out. We'll see. If he holds out and the Pats dont address the WR position, that takes away a huge portion of the offense.

Dude, I liked Tate and had him in a mock in 2010. 4th rd, I believe, but he went a little early IMO. Liked him a lot. But, you don't trade a 1st rd pick for him, you just use one in the draft in April.
Your proposal makes no sense in terms of market value or in monetary value.
Also, Tate is Foster's back up and has battled injuries at times.
Finally, 1st rd picks have increased value now more than ever before due to the rookie cap.
No way Ben Tate is worth that. I'd deal a 1st, a 2nd and Woodhead to Jax for Maurice Jones Drew right now, however.
Extend MJD after 2012, let Welker walk or tag and trade Welker right now, calling his bluff.
Trading Welker returns your 1st rd pick that you would use for MJ Drew.
We ween Brady off his addiction with this move, avoid over-paying Welker, and still control the draft.
Translation? Slam dunk AFC East champs, likely AFC favorites and a return to the SB.
