The Pittsburgh Steelers may need the services of another good wide receiver. Especially if Mike Wallace is gone. Wes Welker may be released by the New England Patriots and he would give Roethlisberger a great target to throw to. Not only does the guy bring a great deal of experience with him, he is a proven winner. This could be the ticket the Steelers need to get back to a dominating force in the AFC North. Welker is a durable player, he played in all 16 games for most of his 8 year career.
Last season he caught 118 passes for 1,345 yards and 6 touchdowns. He could easily become one of Ben’s favorite receivers. The question now becomes if the Steelers would be willing to pay Welker the kind of money he is expecting to get. The Patriots may be in cap trouble and this could be the reason they release Welker. If they do the Steelers would be wise to do what ever it takes to bring him to Pittsburgh. He would be a big help to the Steelers offense.
