New England Patriots president Jonathan Kraft made an appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston with Felger and Massarotti via SportsRadioInterviews.com and was asked about the future of wide receiver Wes Welker.
“He’s going to be with us this year for sure and I think both sides tried hard to get something done and Wes Welker is a professional. I think also the organization is professional and there’s a lot of mutual respect there and I think we’ll have a productive year and hopefully things will work out over the long run. It’s hard in the business to project a week out and to project 52 weeks out is just a lot to ask and probably not worth doing.”
The Patriots can’t say whether or not Welker will be in New England next season, because I believe everything will depend on whether Welker is willing to take a little less money. if he’s not, he’ll be playing somewhere else in 2013.
