Welker thanks fans for support

Wes Welker was devstated after the Patriots’ loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, placing the blame squarely on himself for not catching Tom Brady’s fourth-quarter pass on second and 11.

Welker, his eyes red, spoke to reporters after the game but had been silent on his Twitter account in the days since – until today.

The veteran and soon-to-be free agent posted for the first time in nearly three weeks, and did so to thank those who have been showing support to him since the Super Bowl:

I would like to thank all of my fans for your love and support. I looked outside and the sun came out. #vacationtime

Many of the responses to Welker after the post were positive, with most expressing hope that he returns to the Patriots.
