WES WELKER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Wes Welker on playing in the NFL: ‘I haven’t shut the door’

Wes Welker ready to retire? Receiver weighing his options

Wes Welker isn’t quite sure what he wants to do. The 35-year-old wide receiver is coming off a lackluster season with the St. Louis Rams in which he caught just 13 passes for 102 yards in eight games.

Wes Welker’s return indicates that for some, the NFL is an addictive drug

My only question for Wes Welker: Why? Welker, who is returning to the NFL with the St. Louis Rams, spoke publicly Tuesday for the first time since signing his deal with the team. And while he predictably batted aside questions about his extensive concussion history, he wasn’t able to clarify for me why exactly this is a worthwhile risk for a successful family man with so much...

Wes Welker sends funny tweet about his new life

There was once a time when free agent NFL wide receiver Wes Welker spent his Sundays and Mondays catching passes for some of the best teams in the AFC.
