Agreed, but how many 1000 yard receivers did the Pats have with Brady throwing to them?

Wes Welker 4 (07, 09, 11, 12)*
Rob Gronkowski 4 (11, 14, 15, 17)
Julian Edelman 3 (13, 16, 19)
Randy Moss 2 (07, 09)*
Brandin Cooks 1 (17)

*Moss and Welker both went over 1000 in 08 but Brady wasn't playing that year.

Brady was a master of spreading the ball around, and even then Edelman is 3rd on that list.

I agree his overall stats don't match up, but as you say he did it on the biggest stage (playoffs and SB). Though if Edelman is even considered, Welker should be higher in the pecking order.

Re: NFL Free Agency Around the League

Edelman's regular season numbers are pretty weak comparing him with other HOF'ers and guys that have been passed over so far.

Just the fact there's a debate out there for him while barely a peep for Gary Clark is crazy.

Gary Clark

Julian Edelman

He will make it because he was a Patriot and won multiple rings.

Re: NFL Free Agency Around the League

Jadeveon is the most likely to get injured guy. Bruce Allen would love this guy. Only once in his 7 year nfl career has he played all games. Many missed games. A reoccurring knee patella issue that will only get worse. Multiple sports hernias that required surgery. Back issues. He should retire.

It's early, and likely a knee jerk reaction. Hopefully these talking heads will come to their senses as the dust settles. I heard Schefty lobbying for him already, just minutes after he announced his retirement. A bit ridiculous really.

Gary Clark should get in before Edelman.

10,000+ yards and 65 TDs with 2 SBs.

vs.

6,800 yards and 36 TDs.

Garrett and Clowney could be a good combo

Re: NFL Free Agency Around the League

When Clowney is healthy he can be very disruptive. Definitely a good combo there, again assuming he can stay on the field.

Re: NFL Free Agency Around the League

Dave Gettleman prioritized Devontae Booker, thinking Giants can’t have too many running backs

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...running-backs/

Great job here by Gettleman

Better than Garett + Vernon + Richardson? IMO not as big an improvement as some media faces are making out. Cheaper yes, but not incrementally better than last year.
