Former Patriots offensive lineman and three-time Super Bowl champion Matt Light joined Sports Tonight on Tuesday to talk about the Patriots as they head into offseason.

One of the biggest offseason topics - again - looks to be the status of Wes Welker. Will he be back in a Patriots uniform? Will the Pats franchise him, or give him a longterm deal? Light talks about how important Welker is to the team, and what the Patriots should do to reward him.

"If you take the heart and soul away from a team, it's not like open-heart surgery these days. He's a guy that you have try to find a way to make him right. I think he made really good money last year, and I think you can't argue that fact. The way the league is set up right now, there going to be able to push it to the nth degree, but at some point you have to say just do the right thing for the guy, he's been there long enough."
