Found January 22, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker had another infamous playoff drop in the final game of his team’s season. It could wind up being not only Welker’s last game of the 2012 campaign, but also of his Patriots’ career, as the wide out is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Still, the veteran is not concerned with his current contract status, according to James Walker of ESPN. “I’m really not worried about it at all,” Welker said of his contract status. “This is a tough loss and I’m just trying to get over it at the moment. Like I said, I’m not worried about any of it.” Welker caught eight passes for 117 yards and one touchdown during last Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game. However, he also had another pivotal drop during a third-down play. Welker turned in another productive season for the Patriots, catching 118 passes for 1,354 yards and six touchdowns. Still, he led the NFL in dropped passes this year with 11, and this along with his age, he’ll turn 32 in May, and his pending contract status have his future with the Patriots as cloudy as ever.
