Wes Welker: One Week Away, $6 Million Apart

Wes Welker and the Patriots are still a long ways away from getting a long term deal done and there is just a week left for them to come to an agreement. The Patriots used their franchise tag of $9.5 million on Welker at the beginning of the free agent signing period and that was supposed to buy them some time to negotiate a long-term deal. That deal still is not done and the time is running out. If the two sides can’t come to an agreement, Welker will be a free agent again at the end of the season.
