Welker ‘glad’ to be with New England

In case you’re not on Twitter – or you weren’t up too late last night – receiver Wes Welker took to his feed to make a brief statement on his feelings after having the franchise tag applied to him by New England Monday.

Wrote Welker:

Glad that I will be a Patriot in 2012. and hopefully ’13,’14,’15,’16,’17,’18……….

Welker would be 37 in the 2018 season, but clearly he wants to stick around.

Given his public – and positive – statement, it’s tough to think he’ll hold out if he does not have a long-term deal in place by the start of training camp.
