The Welker rumor mill has been turning for some time. Talk started after his famed "The Drop" in last season's Super Bowl loss, only to be perpetuated by the drawn-out contract talks between him and the New England Patriots.
Then came Week 1, where Welker sat out a surprisingly high number of snaps, managing just three grabs.
Since then, Welker's been his normal self, averaging nine catches and 121.6 yards per game.
Despite all the speculation, Wes Welker is reminding everyone why he is so vital to this New England Patriots team. And if the Pats are going to sniff another Super Bowl, Welker will be key.
