    Actually, I see that I'm a few hours late in this announcement. It's been posted at least twice below. My sincerest apologies!

    Just because they said it doesn't mean it's true. It could be true or it could be a convenient excuse. I wouldn't be surprised if Welker is pissed about not getting paid and is holding out of preseason games to reduce the chances he gets hurt. I wouldn't blame him either.

    I don't think Welker or the Patriots would lie about a member of Welker's family dying. And if he was holding out of preseason games to reduce the chance's he gets hurt why doesn't every player in the league playing for a contract do the same thing?

    Why would a player hold out who has signed a contract worth a guaranteed $9.5 million in 2012?

    Think before you press post.

    My sympathies go out to Wes Welker and his family.

    I'm with you on this, no doubt Welker had one of his relatives killed to avoid a preseason game.

    Welker isn't getting paid? Oh yeah, the poor guy's only making 9.5 million this season.

    So he was a holdout of two preseason football games, yet last night attended the charity event of the owner who has so terribly bargained with him 'in bad faith' regarding his contract?

    Sorry those two things don't mesh.

    What will the sports talk mediots talk about today, particularly enjoyed the highly intellectual reasoning of Gresch and Zo, who got a lot of mileage out of "listen to his voice", "why did he make this comment?", "he deliberately said"... etc.

    Great point, Welker is worth less than a 3rd of what Santonio Holmes and Pierre Garcon got.


    Same old same old, Welker shows his decency and Patriot fans use it against him. Stay classy Patriot fans,



    BTW-Great thread yesterday, Welker sure was pouting, glad you guys were able to discuss it at length.

    The only receiver in football who had a better season than Welker was Calvin Johnson, he received 120+million dollar extension. Offering Welker less than 17 for 2 years is pathetic, suggesting that is bargaining in good faith is ludicrous
