Wes Welker may be the most fortunate wide receiver in the NFL. He spent six seasons in New England with Tom Brady, one of the top quarterbacks in recent history, and now he's heading to Denver to join Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. In other words, Wes Welker may be the luckiest wide receiver in the history of the NFL. Still, it's his impact on the Broncos' potential to win a championship that is most intriguing. The two favorites from the AFC side of the bracket next season will most likely be the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots. With Welker moving to Denver, not only do the Broncos gain a great threat, but they take one away from the Patriots. To say the least, Tom Brady was upset to lose one of his best targets, as the tweet from Tom Curran below illustrates. Spoke to someone close to Tom Brady. Beyond enraged at contract details that netted Broncos Wes Welker. "Disgrace""disservice" were used. — Tom E. Curran (@tomecurran) March 13, 2013 Welker has gained more than 1,000 yards receiving in five of his last six season, and it's that type of production that the Broncos look to cash in on by bringing him into the fold. To say the least, he'll make the Broncos' high powered offense that much more explosive, and the addition of Welker may be enough to catapult the Broncos past the Patriots as the AFC favorite to reach the Super Bowl following the 2013 season.
