This week, the Patriots will deal with one of the best slot receivers not named Welker, Davone Bess of the Miami Dolphins.http://www.necn.com/11/29/12/Belichick- ... eedID=3352
Bess, who's signed through 2013 with Miami, is an intriguing player. At 5-10, 190, he's a little more solidly built than Welker. He's also a little faster. Bess is a player I used to think could be plugged into the New England offense in place of Welker and give identical production.
To me, Bess plays almost as well as Welker. He can read defenses to know the soft spots, has very dependable hands, and makes yards after the catch. He also is a good punt returner.
