Wes Welker Says There’s A “Small Percentage” He Plays In 2016, Would Take Right Situation


Free agent WR Wes Welker mentioned during an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio that there’s is a “small percentage” for him to play in 2016.

“If I got a good job offer to do something else, then I’d probably go that route,” Welker said. “But I did the whole deal last season where the first eight weeks, I’m just kind of sitting on the couch, feeding my kids and changing diapers and stuff. And I was like, ‘All right, I just need to get out of the house. I need something to do.

“So I think that’s the main thing for me is finding something to do where I have some sort of routine and something to go out there and kind of challenge me a little bit.

According to Welker, it would take the right situation and the right team to convince him that the opportunity was worth pursing. Welker added that he would likely need to two – three weeks to get into shape.

“I wouldn’t say extremely football fit right now,” Welker said. “But I’m in shape enough where, if I had two to three weeks to get ready, then I think I could be ready.

Welker has actually stopped by to help a few teams as a receivers coach this summer including the Dolphins and Ravens.

However, there hasn’t been any reported interest in him since the free agent market opened back in March.

Welker, 35, originally signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech back in 2004. He spent three years in Miami before he was traded to the Patriots for 2007 second- and seventh-round picks that ultimately became Samson Satele and Abraham Wright.

After six years with the Patriots, Welker signed a two-year contract with the Broncos before joining the Rams midseason last year.

In 2015, Welker appeared in eight game and caught 13 passes for 102 yards and no touchdowns.

We’ll have more regarding Welker as the news is available.
