Free agent WR Wes Welker: 'I want to keep playing'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) For a wideout with five 1,000-yard seasons under his belt, free agent Wes Welker might not understand why he remains a man without a team.

After all, he hasn't faded into oblivion statistically. He started eight games last year for Denver and caught 49 passes. He snagged a career-high 10 touchdowns in 2013.

"I want to keep playing," Welker told the Toucher and Rich radio show. He added that he would be open to rejoining the Patriots, for whom he had his finest seasons.

It remains to be seen how much he could produce at age 34 on a team without a premier quarterback. Welker has spent his nearly his entire career catching passes from Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.


Broncos' Wes Welker says concussion expert cleared him to play


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) Wide receiver Wes Welker, formerly of the Broncos, hasn't had much interest on the free agent market. He's had one visit--to the Dolphins--since he became a free agent in March. Concern over his repeated concussions may be one factor. 

Welker told Denver's 9News that he met with one of the country's leading experts on concussions and got a clean bill of health. 

Welker visited Seattle's Dr. Stanley Herring in February and was cleared to resume his NFL career. 

"I knew there were concerns out there but on top of that I wanted to know for my own peace of mind," Welker said . "If there was something wrong, I wanted to know. The doctor said some people are able to take those hits. They get up and are able to come back from them. And there's some people who get them and they're never the same. For me, everything came out all good. My cognitive tests were good. All kinds of tests came out good. I had a trip to Miami and they're doctors said everything looked good."

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Free-agent receiver Wes Welker concluded his visit with the Dolphins on Wednesday, the organization announced.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Welker previously spent three seasons with the Dolphins.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Broncos coach Gary Kubiak told reporters during his combine press conference on Wednesday that wide receiver Wes Welker has no plans to retire this offseason, per NFL.com.

Welker was reportedly weighing retirement, but he rebuffed those rumors when he told the Denver Post Monday that he's "getting ready for 2015."

Welker will become an unrestricted free agent in March, and Kubiak added that he would "love to have him back" with the Broncos. The 33-year-old, who has dealt with a number of concussions during his career, is coming off a season in which he hauled in 49 passes for 464 yards and two touchdowns. He has 890 catches for 9,822 yards in his 12-year career.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2015) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker has no plans to retire this offseason, according to the Denver Post

Reports surfaced last week that Welker was considering retirement, but Welker told the Post he has no plans to leave the game. "Just getting ready for 2015," Welker said. When asked about retirement, Welker said that the word "never ever came out of my mouth."

The 33-year-old Welker is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, and it's unclear whether he'll re-sign with Denver. Welker is coming off a season in which he hauled in 49 passes for 464 yards and two touchdowns. He's dealt with a number of concussions during his career, leading to speculation that he might walk away from the game early. 


Report: Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker considering retirement


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker is reportedly considering retiring from football, according to FOXSports.com.

Welker, who will become a free agent this offseason, has 890 catches for 9,822 yards in his 12-year career. In his two years with the Broncos, Welker has totaled 122 catches for 1,242 yards and 12 touchdowns, just two in 2014.

Welker said just one day after losing in the divisional round of the playoffs he wasn't sure about 2015.

"I don't know. There are a lot of things I've got to figure out in the offseason," Welker said.


Wes Welker doesn't know if he will be back with Broncos


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2015) Veteran wide receiver Wes Welker didn't sound overly confident Monday about a return to the Broncos, a day after Denver was ousted from the playoffs.

"I don't know. There's a lot of things I need to figure out," he said, per The Denver Post.

Welker is set to become a free agent in March. After playing a large role in the Broncos offense in 2013, Welker had a down year in 2014. He totaled just 49 catches for 464 yards and two touchdowns in 14 regular season games.

Welker will turn 34 years old in May.


Emmanuel Sanders, Wes Welker contribute in finale


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Broncos wideouts Emmanuel Sanders and Wes Welker turned in average games Week 17 against the Raiders.

Sanders was the more successful of the bunch, finishing with six receptions for 73 yards. He finished second on the team with nine targets. Sanders enjoyed a breakout season during his first year in Denver. He set numerous career-highs, including yardage (1,404) and touchdowns (9). 

Welker only had two receptions, but managed to pick up 42 yards. Welker took a bit of a step back his second season in Denver. He finished the year with 49 receptions for 464 yards and two scores. 


Wes Welker goes for 30 yards in MNF loss


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/23/2014) Broncos receiver Wes Welker caught all four of his targets for 30 yards in Monday's loss at Cincinnati. It was the eighth time in the past nine games he was held to 31 or fewer yards.

Welker plays the Raiders in Week 17.


Wes Welker paces Broncos in receiving for a change


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/7/2014) Broncos receiver Wes Welker, who had not topped 60 yards in a game all season, led the team with six catches for 82 yards in Sunday's win over Buffalo. Welker caught each of his targets, tying wideout Emmanuel Sanders for the team lead in targets.

Welker visits San Diego in Week 15.


C.J. Anderson, Aqib Talib among Broncos' probables for Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The Broncos unveiled a lengthy injury report for Week 14 against Buffalo. Eight of the 17 players on the list received the green light and were deemed probable for Sunday. Those players were: Running back C.J. Anderson (ankle), tackle Paul Cornick (shoulder), linebacker Lerentee McCray (illness), center Will Montgomery (knee), cornerback Aqib Talib (hamstring), wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (ankle), running back Juwan Thompson (knee) and wide receiver Wes Welker (rest)

Safety Quinton Carter (knee), defensive tackle Terrance Knighton (elbow), defensive end Quanterus Smith (ribs), tight end Jacob Tamme (ribs) and tight end Julius Thomas (ankle). Meanwhile, running back Montee Ball (groin), running back Ronnie Hillman (foot), wide receiver Cody Latimer (concussion) and cornerback Kayvon Webster (shoulder) were ruled out for Sunday.


Broncos WR Wes Welker held to one reception in win vs. Chiefs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker caught one of just two targets for 12 yards in his team's 29-16 win over the Chiefs in Week 13.

Welker has been virtualy phased out of the passing game, and the absence of tight end Julius Thomas for a second straight game was unable to help the veteran receiver's bottom line. He has just 35 receptions for 294 yards with two touchdowns in 10 games. Welker's next chance will come against the Bills in Week 14.


Broncos' Wes Welker scores touchdown in Week 12 win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker was on the receiving end of a 2-yard touchdown pass from Peyton Manning to help the Broncos beat the Dolphins 39-36 Sunday.

The touchdown prevented Welker from having a completely dismal performance against his former team. Welker caught all four his targets for 18 yards. Welker has yet to record a 100-yard receiving game this season.

The Broncos will play at Kansas City Week 13.


Quartet of Broncos pitch in with meager output Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) In an uncharacteristically meager offensive performance by the Broncos in St. Louis on Sunday, several skill position players provided small contributions.

Included were wide receiver Andre Caldwell and tight end Jacob Tamme, who managed 31 yards receiving apiece while Wes Welker added just 28 on four receptions. Running back Juwan Thompson chipped in with one catch for five yards.


Broncos WR Wes Welker held in check Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker was held in check yet again in his team's 41-17 defeat to the Raiders in Week 10.

Welker had three catches in first half and came down with a 13-yard reception in the third quarter for final catch of the afternoon. He was targeted five times and finished with four grabs for 24 yards. He has been held under 35 yards in three consecutive games. He has only 26 catches for 236 yards and a score this season.

Welker will look to get back on track Week 11 against the Rams.


Broncos WR Wes Welker gets the green light for Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) As expected, Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker was officially ruled active for Sunday's game against the Raiders in Week 10. Welker was knocked out of Week 9 after taking a brutal hit to the back by Devin McCourty, but was probable heading into the game. The 33-year-old has 22 catches for 212 yards and a touchdown this season.

Broncos issue injury report with just one ruled out


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Linebacker Nate Irving (knee) is the lone Broncos player ruled out for the Sunday game in Oakland. Only running back Montee Ball (groin), tackle Paul Cornick (shoulder) and tight end Virgil Green (calf) are questionable.

The probables are headlined by wideout Wes Welker (back). The others are safety Quinton Carter (hamstring), linebacker Steven Johnson (ankle), kicker Brandon McManus (groin) and running back Juwan Thompson (knee).


Broncos coach John Fox: WR Wes Welker listed as day to day


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Broncos coach John Fox told reporters Monday that wide receiver Wes Welker currently is listed as day to day leading up to Week 10 against the Raiders, the USA Today reports. Welker left Week 9 against his former team, the Patriots, after taking a brutal hit to the lower back by Devin McCourty.

The team will likely know more on his status come Wednesday when the Broncos released their first injury report for Sunday's game.


Wes Welker too unreliable at this point


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker was forced to leave Week 9 against the Patriots with a back injury, but was not on his way to a big game anyways, as he continues to struggle.

Welker was targeted eight times in the game prior to the injury, but had just three catches for 31 yards prior to the injury. He now has fewer than 50 yards in three of the last four games now, and has just one double-digit Fantasy game in five games since returning from suspension.

Welker's production is down, but that isn't the only reason Fantasy owners should be trying to avoid relying on him. The 33-year-old missed three games last season and has had a lot of concussion issues in recent years, making him a risk to miss time and leave games early. At this point, you can no longer just pencil Welker into your lineup every week. 


Broncos WR Wes Welker ruled out Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Broncos wideout Wes Welker will not return Week 9 against the Patriots.

Welker took a big hit from Devin McCourty on an interception, but was initially ruled probable to return with a back injury. After being re-evaluated, it was determined Welker would not return. He finished with three receptions for 31 yards. 


Broncos' Wes Welker probable to return with back injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker is probable to return Week 9 against the Patriots.

Welker took a big hit from cornerback Devin McCourty and injured his back on the play. He's expected to return to the contest. 


Broncos WR Wes Welker feels 'strange' as third wheel


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) Broncos veteran wide receiver Wes Welker told the Denver Post that it feels "kind of strange" being the third option in the offense.

The 33-year-old Welker has just 19 catches for 181 yards and one touchdown in five games played this season. "I feel like I am the weak link of our offense," he said. "But if I am the weak link, we're going to be OK."

Denver quarterback Peyton Manning has shown faith in Welker, to whom he's thrown nine times on third down this season for six receptions and four first downs.

Welker owns the NFL record for most receptions by an undrafted player. He has racked up 860 career catches.


Broncos WR Wes Welker makes game-saving fumble recovery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker didn't have a busy night, but made a key fumble recovery in Week 8 against the Chargers.

With Denver ahead by 14 points in the fourth quarter, his teammate Emmanuel Sanders was stripped by Eric Weddle. He made a scrappy recovery to maintain possession. Welker was limited to only two grabs for 5 yards on two targets in a 35-21 victory. He's been targeted only six times over the last three games.

He'll look to get back on track against his former team, the Patriots, in Week 9.


Wes Welker shows he still matters


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker looked like a lost cause in Fantasy after getting just one target, which he converted for an 8-yard reception, Week 6 at the Jets, his starting rate dropping to just 30 percent.

So naturally, he delivered his first touchdown of the season Week 7 at San Francisco -- and not on one of his usual underneath routes either. He broke free down the left sideline on a mid-range toss that he took 39 yards for the score in the first quarter.

Of course, he had just three catches for 50 yards in all, which isn't exactly the stuff of legends, and he was targeted on just those three passes. Maybe you'd be a sucker for buying into him again.

Then again, quarterback Peyton Manning was so efficient with his passes in Week 7, completing 22 of 26 for 318 yards, that no player had a high number of targets relative to his receptions. Demaryius Thomas, who caught eight passes for 171 yards, had only nine.

Welker played 80 percent of the snaps -- more than Thomas, actually -- for the most productive passing offense in the game. His yardage may be too limited for standard-league use, but he's going to be involved enough to remain relevant in points-per-reception leagues.
