Wes Welker has something else other than football to brag about. The Broncos receiver had hair transplant surgery this offseason and when asked had no problem discussing the procedure. H/T For The Win “[The growth] doesn’t happen right away,” Welker told For The Win. “You start to see a little bit after two or three months and in six months you get to see a little more. Once you get up to a year you’re really starting to see the difference. It takes a full 18 months till it’s fully grown in.” “It’s nothing to be embarrassed about,” he said. “If you want to have hair, have hair. I don’t like to sit there and say ‘What are you talking about? I never got my hair done.” People can notice it without wondering.” The average hair transplant surgery can cost between $4,000 and $15,000 and Welker has admitted to receiving calls from other players asking for his doctor’s information. I commend Welker for being so open. He’s right, after about a year when he’s out on the field looking like Troy Polamalu we would’ve been giving him the side eye.

  • more power to you Wes. Bald is NOT beautiful.
  • And this is news?
  • For WW, the transplant was probably the least expensive of his many surgeries and success is obvious. If he's happy, this Patriots fan is happy!

RUMORS & GOSSIP

Five teams that failed to improve this offseason

As the offseason begins to wind down, most of the teams in the league made a statement on their plans for the 2015 season. A shocking amount of teams took steps towards contending, while some pumped the brakes a little bit and decided to rebuild for the long-term future. However, some teams didn’t make much of their winter, and are still hanging out in no man’s land. Other...

Steelers fans were more profane on social media

It’s no secret Steelers fans are one of the most passionate NFL fan bases out there. And this is nothing new. Historically, they’ve always had a strong presence wherever they play—traveling well and rocking the black and yellow in nearly every square inch of North America. They will also go to great lengths to defend their team. And sometimes profanity is involved. On that...

Richard Sherman's girlfriend talks possible Super Bowl baby

A big story emerging out of the buildup to Super Bowl XLIX is whether or not one of the Seattle Seahawks’ best players will even be on the field come Sunday.

DeMarco Murray: I don't pay attention to being replaced

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is slated to become a free agent in March. And while he’s coming off a season that saw him put up a league-high 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns, a return to the Cowboys is far from a certainty. With the Cowboys honing in on signing Dez Bryant to a long-term extension and very little money under the salary cap, there’s a strong possibility...

Rex Ryan praises Patriots, calls Deflategate 'unfortunate'

If it’s any consolation to the New England Patriots, it looks as though one of their biggest adversaries is on their side.   Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan briefly spoke to reporters in Phoenix on Thursday, but it was still enough time for someone to ask a DeflateGate question. Ryan scoffed after being asked if he ever suspected the Patriots of deflating footballs while he...
