It's not likely that either receiver will play for the Patriots 10 years from now. They'll probably sign him for 5-6 years, but the next 3 is all that really matters. If he doesn't perform over the next 3, chances he'll be cut before the final two.
So the only years that matter, are the next three.
Welker may very well have peaked. Harvin may peak in the next three.
I'm not saying there is a clear cut right choice, but I don't thin their ages make it a no brainer.
Another thing, the way the Randy Moss experiment ended, & the Ocho Cinco debacle, I'm not so sure the Patriots would be interested.
