Is Denver Broncos Wes Welker putting his future in danger?
J Thoendell stashed this in Sports
Welker was a pass-catching savant once. Only 19 players in league history have caught more passes than his 884, and no one caught more passes in the NFL in 2007, 2009 and 2011. Just 5-foot-9, he was Mighty Mouse in shoulder pads, the slot receiver who could shake free of his own shadow to get open. And he bounced up from every big hit, head bobbing and jaw flapping as he strutted back to the huddle.
He is not that player anymore, yet he has no intention of retiring. "As long as I've recovered the right way and everything like that, I'm ready to go," Welker says. "I really don't see any problem with it."
