The latest on the Wes Welker situation

Welker vs. Edelman? Welker vs. Patriots? There have been a whole lot of theories why Wes Welker's playing time has been cut into.

Chris Gasper of the Boston Globe joined Felger and Mazz to talk about it. Felger wants to know if Welker's playing time is based on pure football reasons. Gasper doesn't think so.

"I think there is a component to it, but to answer your question, I don't think it is for pure football. I think there is a business element to that." said Gasper "The business element could be as simple as 'this guy might not be here next year,' lets start getting other people ready to fill in and to take his role."

Stay tuned to the Wes Welker saga to see how it unfolds.
