12/09/15 - WR Wes Welker was limited in practice Wednesday with a calf injury.
11/22/15 - WR Wes Welker is still looking to become a bigger part of the game plan. He had a key reception for a first down in the opening quarter and finished with two catches for 13 yards after being targeted four times. Welker also returned a punt for 10 yards as the Ravens tried to stay away from Tavon Austin.
11/09/15 - WR Wes Welker signed a one-year deal with the St. Louis Rams, coach Jeff Fisher said Monday.
Welker agreed to a one-year deal that could earn him a base salary plus as much as $700K in incentives, depending how much he plays and how many catches he has, based on playing time and catches, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
The Rams needed help at the wide receiver position after Stedman Bailey received a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
The Rams worked out Welker as well as Hakeem Nicks and Vincent Brown today, ESPN reported.
05/01/15 - WR Wes Welker says he has been cleared to continue playing after tests showed no adverse effects from the three concussions he suffered with the Broncos over the last two seasons.
Welker told Denver's WUSA-TV that he was examined in February by Dr. Stanley Herring, a member of the NFL's head, neck and spine committee. He also got passing marks from the Miami Dolphins' doctors during his recent free-agent visit.
"I knew there were concerns out there; but, on top of that, I wanted to know for my own peace of mind. If there was something wrong, I wanted to know," Welker told WUSA-TV. "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 doctors said everything looked good."
Welker, who turns 34 on Friday, said he wants to return for an 11th NFL season.
"I am 100 percent committed to keep playing," he said. "I feel like every day that goes by, the chances are less so. But I want to play."
Welker's market might heat up after May 12, when free agents no longer count in the compensatory formula.
Welker has 890 receptions for 9,822 yards and 50 touchdowns in his career with the Dolphins (2005-06), New England Patriots (2007-12) and Broncos. Last season was his worst since his rookie year in 2005, as he caught 49 passes for 464 yards and two touchdowns.
