Is there an issue between the Patriots and Welker?

One week after Julian Edelman surprising got more snaps than Wes Welker, who saw a reduced role in the offense, Edelman got the start in Week 2.

Oh boy.

That means more speculation, and where there is speculation, there is Felger and Mazz. So, the two ask if there's really something going on between Welker and the Patriots. Is Edelman just being groomed as Welker's replacement? Are the Pats just taking Welker out of their gameplan and moving in another direction?

What do you think? Let us know!

Andrew Hawkins celebrates joining Patriots with 'Ballers' spoof

Andrew Hawkins' situation isn't far off from a character in HBO's "Ballers." And he played into those connections with a video on Twitter.

The slot receiver, who signed with the Patriots on Wednesday, shares some similarities with the fictional football player Rickey Jerret, a veteran receiver who wades through interest from a number of teams, including New England, during free agency. Because of those similarities, Hawkins spoofed on a scene from "Ballers" where Jerret works out with Patriots receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Hawkins imposes his face over Jerret's.
