For the second straight offseason, wide receiver Wes Welker’s future with the New England Patriots is uncertain.
Quarterback Tom Brady once again made it clear that he wants Welker to come back next season, while talking with Dennis & Callahan Show on Boston sports radio WEEI.
“Everybody knows how I feel about Wes, our whole team feels that way about Wes,” Brady said, per ESPNBoston.com. “He’s just one of the best players I’ve played with and played against. He’s just a phenomenal player, and he’s been the heart and soul of what our team is all about. He’s been so selfless, and the way that he carries himself and commits himself to help our team win, it’s second-to-none. But like I said, those aren’t my decisions.”
Welker has been a great player for the Patriots, but he’s certainly on the back-end of his career and there’s no way he’s going to get the money he’s looking for from the Patriots.
