Report: Talks between the Patriots and Wes Welker are "stagnant"
According to Tom Curran of CSNNE.com, ”it would be an upset” if the New England Patriots and wide receiver Wes Welker end up getting a long-term extension worked out before Monday’s 4pm est deadline.
“Talks remain stagnant and by stagnant I mean non-existent,” Curran said.
Looks like Welker will play out this season under the franchise tag. Both sides will then be forced to wait until the regular season is over before they can continue negotiating.
