Report: New England Patriots And Wes Welker At Standstill In Contract Talks

The New England Patriots and wide receiver Wes Welker are at a standstill in contract negotiations, according to CSN New England.

Welker’s five-year deal with the club ran out following last season. The Patriots applied a $9.5 million franchise tag on Welker to keep him off of the free-agent market for at least one year. Welker, however, reportedly would rather sign a long-term deal than play on a one –year  contract.

The prolific receiver has yet to sign his franchise-tag tender, which means he is technically not under contract with New England. If he does not sign the tender by the time the team’s mini camps start, he will not be allowed to participate.

Welker has led the league in receptions three-times while a member of the Patriots, including last season where he hauled in 122 passes for 1569 yards. He also paced the league in 2009 when he had 123 receptions, and 2007 when he had 112.
