There are several offensive playmakers in this year's NFL free-agent market, and each player is sure to generate plenty of interest across the league.
Retaining key playmakers is the answer to most offenses' explosive production. Failing to do so puts a dent in team chemistry and certainly makes things tougher for the quarterback when surveying a defense.
Take Wes Welker of the New England Patriots for example.
He's a major part of the Pats offense, and Tom Brady gets plenty of passing yards because of Welker's ability to accumulate yards after the catch. And it's the constant dependability of Welker that cannot be immediately replaced.
We'll check out more on Welker first, but the other playmakers here mean just as much to their teams' efficient ball movement.
