New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker has signed his $9.5 million franchise tender, a league source has told ESPN.

 

Welker’s five-year deal with the club ran out following last season. The Patriots had applied a $9.5 million franchise tag on Welker to keep him off of the free-agent market for at least one year. Up until now, the prolific receiver had not signed the tender in hopes of reaching a long term agreement instead.
