  Wes Welker has been in some serious discussions with the Denver Broncos about reaching a deal. There could an agreement on a contract later today. New England would have to pay Welker $11.4 million for the 2013 season. Wes has been Tom Brady’s security blanket for the past few years. Welker has been the first player in NFL history to have five straight seasons with 110 or more catches. In Detroit the Lions are looking to give quarterback Matthew Stafford more offensive weapons. Today the Lions signed Reggie Bush to a four year deal. The Lions also signed cornerback Chris Houston and former Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Jason Jones today. Reggie Bush commented on his new team by saying, “The first thing we talked about, we’re watching film, seeing those safeties deep. It’s a running back’s dream. We have to be able to run the ball in that situation. That’s part of the reason I wanted to come here and be part of a balanced attack and take the pressure off Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford.” In Arizona it looks like the Cardinals gave a one year deal to former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall. Cardinals’ new coach Bruce Arians did work with Rashard Mendenhall when Arians was the offensive coordinator for the Steelers. Mendenhall had a few injuries that sidelined him last season. In his career stats Rashard has rushed for 3,549 yards and 29 touchdowns. After the San Francisco 49ers got Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin earlier this week, the released a player today. The 49ers look to lose safety Dashon Goldson to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The deal looks to be a five-year contract and is worth $41.25 million. According to sources he will get $22 million guaranteed. 49ers linebacker wished Goldson his congratulations on Twitter by writing, “Big ups to my boy. Man it’s definitely well deserved and a long time coming folks. Congrats to you my boy.”
