‘Wes’-tern New York State of mind for Welker?
New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker has been unhappy all season long about how the offense used him. Welker has been nothing short of remarkable as one of the Patriots’ best wide receivers. Since the 2011 season, according to ProFootballreference.com, Welker has recorded 240 receptions for a combined 2,923 yards and 15 touchdowns. Add in the fact that, in the last six seasons, Welker has only had one season in which he caught less than 100 passes for the year (86 receptions, 848 yards, 7 TD’s), and you’ve got quite the reliable receiver, one that any other team in the NFL would love to have as an asset to their offense, should the Pats go in another direction and part ways with Welker.
