Don't blame Wes Welker's departure from the New England Patriots to the Denver Broncos on his agents says a hair transplant expert.  Blame it on the NFL star's new luscious locks. At least that's the way Dr. Ryan Welter — a Rhode Island-based hair transplant specialist — sees it. Welter told GoLocalProv.com, a Rhode Island news website, that Welker bolted from new England  for Denver because he was embarrassed when the doctor who performed his hair transplant surgery a year ago paraded Welker's procedure out in public with a number of ads for his business. "Privacy is important and when you tell the world that you had a transplant, that's a lot of pressure to put out there for everyone to see when the helmet is off. Better get it right the first time. I just hope the added pressure didn't affect his decision (to leave)," Dr. Welter said. Dr. Robert Leonard, who replaced the missing hair in the follically-challenged wide receiver's head, called Welter's remarks a bald-faced lie. He said Welker is a "very self-assured" man who "just doesn't like losing his hair." Welker even gave a plug for Dr. Leonard's hair plugs.  The former-Patriot wrote a testimonial on the doctor's website saying how happy he was with Dr. Leonard's work. Now if he convinces Peyton to put some turf in the end zone, that would be a testimonial.
