Wes Welker's time in Denver may be drawing to a close, much sooner than his contract would lead you to believe, according to a report.
The Broncos wide receiver and former Patriot, who will count for $8 million against Denver's cap in 2014, may be cap casualty, according to a report by NBC Sports and CSNNE's Tom Curran. He's going on the second year of a 2-year, $12 million contract.
After suffering two concussions in 2013, and with free agents Eric Decker, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Wesley Woodyard to deal with, the Broncos will likely look to cut costs somewhere in order to bring back some of their key talent.
If that scenario played out, Welker could return to the Patriots at the right price. But then there's the matter of whether or not Bill Belichick, he who blamed Welker for Aqib Talib's AFC Championship injury, would even want him back.
In our latest Globe 10.0, Kevin Paul Dupont and Chad Finn debate that very topic. See the video above.
