As written in a previous article by fellow writer and editor Mike Dyce, the Denver Broncos were in talks with Wes Welker after he decided it was time to move on.
Now, they got things done and added another weapon to the already dangerous arsenal that Peyton Manning has to play with.
Wes Welker has agreed to a 2 year contract worth $12 million.
In New England, Welker was Tom Brady’s favorite target, as 70% of Brady’s completions went Wes Welker’s way. So imagine what he will do now that he is in Denver with Peyton Manning and the rest of that offense?
His numbers may go down a bit, with the receiving core they have in Denver, but it will make it harder for defenses when it comes to the type of coverage they are going to have to prepare.
Seriously, how are they going to cover this? Eric Decker, Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, Andre Caldwell, Greg Orton and they still have more moves to make? The talent they have on both sides of the ball, should carry this team a long ways and the Broncos should be sitting pretty late in the season, as long as their team stays healthy. This is one team I am excited to watch when the new season starts. AFC beware, Denver is on a serious mission.
Wes Welker’s two-year, $12 million contract has $150,000 in incentives for each year he catches 90 passes. Deal has no other incentives.
