They'll both be Pats next year.  Edelman auditioned for the part of Welker, and Welker may be available.

Always thought it was amazing how these two guys were so successful in NE ... not sure they could do what they do on any other team in the NFL.

Good players. Being played to there strengths.

Credit BB and Brady for knowing when where and how to use them.

As for excelling on other teams? Meh. Maybe. But to me it looks like they are being used to there full potential where they are now.

And Edlman can't stay out of the trainers room.

Edelman is a UFA in 2013. The Patriots will likely try to retain him, but yes - he has a pretty extensive injury history and cannot seem to stay on the field. I have no idea if there will be a lot of interest from other teams or not.

 

Woodhead is also a UFA heading into next season. Although Shane Vereen has a higher upside, I can't see the Patriots letting him go somewhere else, unless some team backs up the Brinks truck for him. (Which is unlikely.) He's not someone who will contribute in every game... he seems to do well in games where more traditional, straight-ahead runners struggle. They'll miss him against Baltimore if he's not able to go Sunday. They're the type of team (big front, not a ton of speed) that he usually gets a lot of touches against.

 

My bet is that both guys will be back in NE.

Edelman is more valuable on ST and the presence of other offensive options on the field makes him effective as an offensive option.

 

Without Welker on the field at the same time, Edelman is less effective, goes without saying. He does not have the durability of a Welker, he however has the short area quickness and ability to separate in small spaces.

 

Woodhead is a very effective 3rd down back, he is OK in picking up blitzes, not a world beater but when he gets a crease, he is very effective in getting chunks of yards downhill. He is probably good for about 10-15 snaps a game consistently, otherwise he will be injured a lot.

Dead-on analysis, as usual Chad. :thmup:

They look the exact same on the field, and you can throw Welker in there too.  If I were any of them, I'd switch jerseys with the other guys randomly just to mess with people

With the types of hoax stories coming out lately, it wouldn't surprise me to find out that Danny Woodhead, Julian Edelman, and Wes Welker are all the same person.

What type of salary are they expecting to get this offseason?

Gosh, no idea... Edelman took in around $650K on the last year of his rookie deal. Woodhead was around $900K. My guess is that neither guy is expecting to cash in, but obviously players like these guys (good, not great) follow the money. Someone may overpay for one or the other but the Patriots probably will not!

Some team will over pay for Edelman and Woodhead, it won't be the Patriots and I sure hope it is not the Colts.

Just because we have a lot of $$$ to spend this offseason does not mean we need to throw it around. Personally I think we can find another Edelman in the draft or re-sign Collie, that type of receiver has never been hard for the Colts to find and they always find them for cheap. I don't think woodhead is really the style RB for this offense either, we need a RB that can pick up 3rd and 1. Woodhead has struggled with that all year.

They are not bad players but for the amount of cash it will take the Colts to land them we will never see enough from them to justify it. Just my 2 cents.

    • That would be good!     Quite honestly I do not know a thing about him, I was really just throwing out some dry humor... I am a big John Wayne fan though, lol.     God knows we need help in the secondary so any sleepers that awaken this year is a good thing.  It would be a pleasant surprise to actually have a competent defensive backfield.... something Colts fans have rarely seen.
    • I think he is too good of a runner to not utilize him at FB. Here and there putting him there like we did with Turbin wouldnt be bad but i think it's be a waste of his talent him being a full time FB.
    • Moncrief will be fine, it's Dorsett whose days are numbered.
      The signing and the production of Aiken will bring down Moncrief's asking price.
      I expect Moncrief to step it up this year. Dorsett on the other hand could be getting cut unless he proves he can catch the ball.
       
    • Heck, lets really bite the bullet and sign not only Hankins and Brown, but Revis as well to play alongside Davis.  Our defense would be stout with these 3 additions and they won't break the bank and we won't have to rely on nailing every draft pick. Revis would be the only one that might be getting overpaid, but that would only be on a 1-2 year deal.
        I don't see anyone projecting McCaffrey going to the Colts, yet I hear some experts putting McCaffrey above Fournette. He is from Stanford so you know the kid is smart and we have a good track record with Stanford players. He excels at everything, plus who was the last good white boy running back n the NFL? Peyton Hillis? Madden curse got him and he wasn't even half as versatile as McCaffrey who can not only receive like a receiver(top 5 WR as well as top 3 RB) but he can also return the ball. We have like 3 or 4 guys that take turns as the returner, McCaffrey allows us to pretty much cut all those guys.

      We need to sign a couple more guys so we can pick the best player on the board come our turn in the draft. As it stands, we still have too many holes to do that. McCaffrey could step in immediately and provide 50 yards of offense running and catching the ball. 8-10 carries for Gore and Turbin both and just 4-6 for McCaffrey while giving him another 4-6 targets in the passing game. And when Gore retires after this season, or next, then McCaffrey still compliments Turbin perfectly.

      If we signed these 3 players, and took McCaffrey with the first pick, then we could get another edge rusher in the 2nd and a CB in the 3rd to replace Revis in his 2nd or 3rd year.
    • That is why it is good to put your eggs in other baskets too, like March Madness, and even a bit of Netflix.   I never caught up to Breaking Bad, so I am catching up now.
