There was a report earlier this week that indicated some progress had been made between Wes Welker and the New England Patriots.
But apparently there wasn't enough progress made to prevent Welker from likely testing the free agent market.
Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports that no deal is imminent and other reports say Welker is likely to see exactly what his value is on the open market beginnng March 12.
What Welker's value will be is certainly an interesting question. A 32-year-old wide receiver usually doesn't fetch a big contract, especially in terms of years, but Welker has been very productive with Tom Brady and the Pats offensive system. Could it be that Welker has more value to the Patriots than any other team in the league because of his and Brady's rapport on the field over the years?
It looks like we're going to find out.
