"Pats famous cheapness", that shows your ignorance on the topic right there.
Pats spend to the cap every year, how is that cheap? People have been parroting that, ignorantly, for a decade.
Brady, Wilfork, Mayo, Mankins and Light ALL get big money, should we be the Jets and have some top paid players, then throw garbage on the field everywhere else? And it's likely a WR gets added to that list, whether it's Welker or somebody else.
Welker to the Giants? Because that would be genius to have: Welker, Cruz, Manningham, and Nicks. Or maybe they let Nicks/Manningham go, and have the best slot receiver in the game (Welker) playing next to a very good slot receiver in Cruz. With a QB who's best ability is to close his eyes and heave it deep...yeah, that makes sense.
Tough luck may have been to callous a way to describe it, but his point remains valid: the Pats have a lot of bodies occupying the same area of the field. If the WR/TE corps can lose Welker, but move sideways as a GROUP, and the TEAM can be improved elsewhere (S, LB, DLine), then overall, that's a very positive gain. Sure, in a perfect, non-salary cap world, Welker gets a 5 year deal and retires a Patriot and slides right into Patriot Place. We live in a world ruled by money, not nostalgia (unfortunately).
