The New England Patriots will be heartened by the news that Wide Receiver Wes Welker looks to be on the mend and should play some part in the 2010 season. Welker who played in 14 games in 2009 was their leading receiver and he was a big miss going into the post season which ended in disappointment for the Patriots as they lost to Baltimore.
Given the New York Jets look like being a major threat in the AFC East this year this is good news for them as they look to recapture the form that saw them dominate the early part of the decade. The retaining of Nose Tackle Vince Wilfork and defensive end Derrick Burgess shows they will not give up their position without a fight in 2010 and given they have drafterd well the battle for supremacy in the division should be most enthralling this season.
