My Slant: Curran OK with Amendola over Welker

Share This Post's Patriots insider Tom E. Curran in his "My Slant" segment of "Quick Slants" says the Patriots made the right choice with signing of wide receiver Danny Amendola and letting Wes Welker sign with the Broncos

"The problem with this conversation is that it's always framed as if the Patriots turned their back on Wes Welker, when actually Welker was advised [by his agent] to turn his back on the Patriots," Curran said.

Amendola is 27. Welker is 32. Curran said Amendola has better hands, more speed and can get to balls that Welker can't.

"This week, Amendola is hurt and probably isn't going to play," Curran said. "But if the Patriots had signed Wes Welker, they'd be 0-1 right now."
