I think we’ll see Edelman back, but Lloyd and Welker aren’t locks in my view. A lot will depend on the market/economics. I’m interested to see how they approach it.
Reiss believes Lloyd coming back will depend on if the Patriots believe he’s worth keeping around.
If they keep him, it’s a $4.5m cap charge. Just comes down to if they think he’s worth that, as opposed to cutting him (post June 1 would be $1 million in dead money for 2013 and another $1 million in dead money for 2014, if I have my math right). I think he has value. Just not sure how the coaching staff assesses it as it relates to economics.
