Report Says Pats WR Welker Was Ready to Approach Team to Re-Do Deal

The Providence Journal reports that Wes Welker sure had reason to be upset, as it looked like he was going to get a new deal done at some point this offseason.

On the bench after limping off the field, television cameras caught Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker crying, fully aware that his season was over, and likely aware that his 2010 season was in jeopardy after suffering a torn ACL and MCL, as well. There may have been another reason for his anguish, there is speculation that Welker was preparing to approach the Patriots about re-negotiating the team-friendly five-year, $16.9-million contract he signed with the club in 2007, and clearly the chance to do so has been lost. Now a two-time Pro Bowl selection with an NFL-best 346 receptions over the last three seasons, Welker has clearly outplayed his contract.
