He may not be in Foxboro working out with his teammates during the current NFL Lockout, but Patriots receiver Wes Welker is making the most of the time away in hopes of playing later this year should the labor situation get worked out.

The Associated Press reported on Saturday that he spent today with about 180 kids who attended the free football camp he holds every year in Oklahoma City.

According to the report Welker tossed a few passes to the participants, along with working with them during receiving drills as well as lining up on defense against them during the 3 1/2-hour camp at Douglass High School.

"You've got to get into it a little bit," Welker said. "I get bored easily. So, for me, I've got to get active and D one of these kids up or catch a pass for 'em, throw to 'em or whatever.

"We have fun with it."
