Dolphins Hosted WR Wes Welker For A Visit

Update:

The Dolphins announced that free agent WR Wes Welker‘s visit with the Dolphins has concluded without him signing a contract.

While the Dolphins are clearly in the market for receiver help, they appear to be taking their time in deciding what their best option is.

It would not be surprising to see Miami wait until after the draft to sign some of the veteran receivers they’ve met with.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins are hosting free agent WR Wes Welker for a visit on Wednesday.

This is the first reported interest in Welker outside of a suggestion that the Packers could have interest in him.

Miami has met with a number of free agents in recent weeks including WRs Michael Crabtree and Greg Jennings, so they are clearly in the market for a receiver.

Welker, 33, has dealt with concussions in recent years and there was a report from last month that he could consider walking away from the game. However, he later refuted the idea and said that he’s planning to play in 2015.

In 2014, Welker appeared in 14 games for the Broncos last year and caught 49 passes for 464 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the N0. 71 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
