According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, wide receiver Wes Welker plans on testing the free agent market before he makes a final decision on whether or not he’s going to re-sign with the New England Patriots.
Patriots free-agent WR Wes Welker has no plans to re-sign with New England before first testing the free-agent market next week.

We mentioned a report yesterday that stated that Welker is still upset over how he was treated during last year’s season-opener. He clearly wants to see if the grass is greener somewhere else.
ESPN’s Ed Werder also reported yesterday that Welker isn’t expected to draw much interest on the open market.
