5 reasons why Wes Welker should finish his career in New England:
1. He wants to play here. He loves this team, he loves Boston and the fanbase loves him. It's a win-win situation.
2. Numbers don't lie. His production is consistently off-the-charts.
3. If he leaves the Patriots, he might wind up on another AFC team, possibly an AFC East team. The Jets would certainly be interested in his services. Playing against Welker several times a year would be a nightmare for us. Plus, he may help the Jets improve, which would also be a nightmare.
4. He's Tom Brady's best friend and most trusted ally on the team. As we've learned over the years, a happy Brady is a happy team, and a slightly disgruntled Brady is a slightly disgruntled team.
5. This team just went to the Super Bowl and they're shaping up to be even better over the next few years, so why rock the boat? The Boston Celtics made a huge mistake after their 2008 championship by systematically dismantling their team. The Boston Bruins kept the essential members of last season's roster intact, and now they're in a great position to repeat as Stanley Cup champions.
