You have to think about it in terms of total net pts for your team. If you get rid of Welker and replace him with a different WR then that WR will likely give you N less pts each week. You have to make sure that the new players that you have to start at each position will more than make up those N lost pts.
The trade for Bradshaw and Clark likely wouldn't do it. You'd have to decide who to start between those 3 RBs each week (Mendenhall, Gore, Bradshaw) and Bradshaw may end up sitting on your bench and not gain you anything. Same with Clark vs. Gronk. So you end up losing all of the Welker minus other WR pts.
I didn't look close enough at depth, bye weeks, etc. though. Something else to consider. Sometimes it can be worth it if you pick up that 3rd RB to win you two bye weeks.
If you trade welker you can do better than that deal I think. Next week Jacobs comes back and that hurts Bradshaws goal line carries. You could trade Welker straight up for a Ryan Matthews, McCoy, type back.
