Davone Bess and the New England Patriots?

The Miami Dolphins made a monumental mistake trading Wes Welker away to their division rival New England Patriots for a second and a fifth round pick. As a Dolphin Welker was a productive receiver, making a name for himself catching tough passes in traffic, a real blue collar player you might say...as a Dolphin. As a Patriot, however, on the receiving end of passes thrown buy three time Superbowl champion quarterback Tom Brady, he became an overnight perennial all pro at the slot position. If this has taught us anything its that great player can be hampered buy their not so great counterparts, not what Dolphin fans want to hear.

A couple of years after losing their "blue collar star" the Miami Dolphins found solace acquiring another hard working receiver, Davone Bess, as a free agent rookie. It quickly became clear that he was a viable replacement for Welker. In just a few year Bess drew several comparisons to the heavily touted Welker. Some even speculated Bess to be the better pass catcher due to his exceptional play with what appeared to be a similar cast to the one Welker had to put up with in Miami. So when Wes Welker fled New England to become a Bronco it was believed that Davone Bess was the ideal replacement for him. When Miami Traded Bess to the Cleveland Brown they were able to get nothing more than a swap of draft position in the 3rd and 5th rounds of the 2013 draft, which begs the question Ive been dying to ask. Where were the New England Patriots when the Miami Dolphins were hosting the Davone Bess Give Away Party?
