Now this is a tricky one because Wes Welker is one hell of a receiver. The downside with him is that he gets injured way too frequently. Last season with the Denver Broncos, Welker struggled to get into a groove and ended the 2014 season with 464 yards and only two touchdowns.

  • Before last year though, Welker had 778 yards and 10 touchdowns on the year in less games played than 2014. He was the starter for all 13 of those games however, whereas he only started eight in 2014.

    Welker just turned 34 at the start of May and hasn’t called it quits yet, nor should he. He still has the ability to go out there and compete at a high level.

    If Wes Welker signed with the Chiefs, he very well could be that second starting receiver. His stats proved he’s probably the better wideout better him and Avant, and he has more experience than Wilson. My only worry are the concussions/injuries he frequently sustains throughout the season. If Welker did come to Kansas City, it’d probably be on a “prove it” one-year deal, just to see if he could remain healthy enough to help out on the offense.

    I don’t see this one happening, but Wes Welker could be a nice option.
