The Denver Broncos made it to the Super Bowl thanks to an amazing receiving corps but they didn’t make it a very competitive Super Bowl. Regardless of the outcome of the Super Bowl, the Broncos need to answer some questions not about their performance but about what they’re going to do with the roster this offseason.

Eric Decker is likely gone and the team may have problems with Wes Welker’s deal. Mike Florio from ProFootballTalk.com reports that if the Broncos can’t work anything out with Welker, the team may pursue Welker’s clone Julian Edelman in free agency.

As Tom Curran of CSN New England pointed out on Friday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, the Broncos could decide to move on, if an impasse is reached.  And that could put Welker back on the market.

Which would allow the Broncos to pursue, say, Patriots slot receiver Julian Edelman.  Which in turn would allow Welker to return to New England.

Denver pried Welker away from the Patriots last offseason and may look to do the same to another one of Tom Brady’s targets in the 2014 offseason as well.

    Patriots won’t let Edelman walk away lol. Bank on it! Welker was a different situation then Edelman. Edelman is younger, faster, and more loved by belichick then welker.

  • Tom Brady

    Plus I’m Tom F’n Brady! They owe it to me after the disaster that happened to my receiving core last year.

    I wish someone would write an article based on fact instead of speculation like everything is this time of year.

    Welker is never coming back to New England as long as Belichick is alive.

    • Ludwing Harrison Morales

      right.. even if Minitron goes.. Welker is not welcomed..

  • Ishkabibble

    Welker’s not coming back to N.E. I can’t believe Curran even thinks that. He doesn’t want to come back and I highly, highly doubt the Patriots want him back. That ship has sailed.
