• Report: Wes Welker deal with Patriots “isn’t anywhere near close”

    Summary of 60 articles · Updated Mar 15, 2013
    The Patriots and free agent receiver Wes Welker have a lot of work to do if they want to get a deal done. "I think we took a big step in signing Wes Welker." The second reason is the Patriots were tired of dealing with Wes Welker. The Patriots wanted to replace Welker, they wanted more then just Welker, and a player or players out there must have had the Patriots fallen in love with them. The offer read like the Patriots thought there was no market for Welker, and that they'd at least have a chance to match. That may or may not happen. It was no ordinary journey that brought Welker from Tom Brady's favorite target the previous six seasons with the New England Patriots to Peyton Manning's new slot receiver with the Broncos. That would have easily gotten a deal done last July, but the Patriots didn’t do that.
