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.
