Wes Welker Agrees to Two-Year Deal with Denver Broncos

Wes Welker

UPDATE: Deal is worth $12 million

The Denver Broncos have successfully accomplished what the New England Patriots could not manage to do, and that is come to an agreement with WR Wes Welker. Welker agreed to a two-year deal today, successfully taking Tom Brady’s favorite target out of New England.

After Tom Brady signed an extension well below his market value in order to free up cap space, many assumed this would be the final variable in place for the Patriots to re-sign Welker. As it turns out, Welker wasn’t moved at all by Brady’s generosity and felt disrespected after far too many failed contract negotiations. As we can see now, it has come back to bite the organization.

In his six seasons in New England, Welker amassed 672 receptions for 7,459 yds and 37 TD. He now joins former rival Peyton Manning in a high-powered passing attack in Denver.
