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.

    • I have them on dvd too.  The kid hits everything!  I didnt say he did it well.  Your original post said he didn't hit.  I just said he does, and half the time its at the end of the play and he ends up clocking a team mate. the kid is raw, but i like his measurables so i'll give it time. i wasnt suggesting he was bob sanders 2.0 in any way.  
    • It was too backloaded. They did a six year contract worth $120m, and the cap hit in the first two years only accounted for ~$20m of the total value of the contract. That means the last four years would have to account for $100m on the cap. The Ravens knew full well that they would have to extend Flacco again, and that's what they did. But now they had to give him a raise, and from 2013-16, they've paid him a total of $106m cash ($26.5m/year), and not all of that is on the cap yet... but it will be. That guy threw 20 TDs and 15 INTs this year (but at least he finally hit 4,000 yards!)    He's decidedly average, even above average. When he gets hot, he can have a four game stretch like he did in the 2012 playoffs. They didn't have much choice but to give him a big contract, but they didn't have to backload it so heavily.    I always said they should have structured it with moderate increases each year, not super low hits up front with sharp increases after Year 3. The Packers did a much more balanced contract with Rodgers, and even the Colts with Luck.
    • Jimmy Raye seems like a very smart and nice man.   However, I wonder... How much input did Raye have regarding all the lousy draft choices and free agent acquisitions made over the past three years?   Also, lets not forget, Jimmy Raye has been one of the top heads of administration during the years of dysfunction. His presence did not seem to help.
    • No way you don't contact these GM guys unless your serious if anything it makes him look bad for choosing Raye over the others
