The Miami Years
Welker played for the Miami Dolphins from 2004 until 2006. During his first season, he was used mostly on special teams. In 2005, Welker was given the third wide receiver slot, but didn’t score a single touchdown. When 2006 came along, rumors that Welker would be cut from the Dolphins were squashed when he became the star of the Miami defense. He also had a team-best 67 receptions for 687 yards and one touchdown. It would be his last season in Miami, however, as he would be traded to the Patriots the next season.
