Free agent WR Wes Welker admitted there's a "small percentage" of him that wants to keep playing, though it would have to be the "right situation and team."
Welker said he would need about 2-3 weeks to get in playing shape. The 35 year old was a dominant slot receiver during his six-year stay in New England, but a string of injuries — including several concussions — sapped his post-Patriot effectiveness. Welker was a non-factor in eight games for the Rams last year, hauling in just 13 catches for 102 yards and zero touchdowns. Even as a camp body, he's not going to attract much interest.

Free agent WR Wes Welker stopped by the Dolphins facility to work with the team's receivers Monday.

Welker played for coach Adam Gase in Denver and lives "minutes" away from the facility. He may be a semi-regular guest at practices this summer as another mind for the receivers to bounce questions off and learn from. Welker, 35, said last month he was undecided if he wanted to continue his playing career.
Jun 6 - 6:27 PM

Free agent WR Wes Welker said he is still deciding if he wants to continue his career.

"I’m weighing my options and really trying to figure out where to go with life next," Welker said. "There are some days I wake up and I’m like ‘OK, I’m done.’ And other days I wake up and I’m like, ‘Oh, maybe one more year.’" Considering he had to wait until November to land a job last season, this decision may ultimately be made for him. The former All-Pro caught 13 passes in 8 games for the Rams last year.

Wes Welker caught 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to San Francisco.

Signed off the street on November 9, Welker wound up appearing in eight games with St. Louis, catching 13 passes for 102 yards. Welker looked like a JAG on his opportunities and turns 35 in May. He'll be a free agent.
Jan 3 - 9:02 PM

Wes Welker (calf) is probable for Week 14 against the Lions.

He practiced on a limited basis this week. Welker's season-high in yards is 32. His days of fantasy relevance are long gone.
Fri, Dec 11, 2015 03:42:00 PM

Wes Welker (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The limited practice suggests it's a minor injury. Welker has 16 targets over the last four weeks.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 06:31:00 PM

Wes Welker secured two of three targets for 12 yards in the Rams' Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

The Rams have been using him as a third-down specialist. That role hasn’t led to much fantasy success. Welker should continue to be a non-factor next week against the Cardinals.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 05:37:00 PM

Wes Welker caught 2-of-4 targets for 13 yards in the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Ravens.

Welker is being thrust into a role on third downs, but the Rams are so bad at them that Welker isn't a real contributor. This pass offense is beyond horrific.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 05:29:00 PM

Wes Welker caught 3-of-6 targets for 32 yards in the Rams' Week 10 loss to the Bears.

Making his Rams debut, Welker finished second on the team in targets behind Brian Quick (7) and tied for the team lead in catches. It was clear the Rams wanted to use Welker on third downs, but Nick Foles missed him badly on a couple passes. The two don't have much chemistry after less than a week of work, and Foles doesn't have the football sense to make Welker an asset.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 06:46:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Wes Welker will be active Sunday against the Bears.

He'll be making his 2015 debut. Even with Peyton Manning throwing to him last year, Welker was mostly a non-factor, hauling in just 49 catches for 464 yards, his lowest totals since 2005. Rapoport suggested Welker could play a role on third downs but in the Rams' run-dominated scheme, he offers very little fantasy appeal.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 09:12:00 AM

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner said coach Jeff Fisher dropped hints Wes Welker will be active this week.

Welker was just signed on Monday. Even if he is active, Welker will play a limited role in an extremely limited passing offense. He does not need to be rostered in any leagues.
Fri, Nov 13, 2015 03:51:00 PM

Coach Jeff Fisher wouldn’t commit to Wes Welker playing this week.

The Rams plan to use the entire week before making a decision on Welker. Even if active, Welker isn’t a Week 10 fantasy option.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 06:45:00 PM

Rams agreed to terms with WR Wes Welker on a one-year contract.

Albeit a low-volume one, Welker could have a meaningful role quickly in St. Louis after Stedman Bailey was slapped with a four-game suspension on Monday. Welker's prime years came with Tom Brady and later Peyton Manning at quarterback. Now 34, Welker will be playing with Nick Foles in a run-devoted Rams offense. It also doesn't help that Foles is completely inept as a short-to-intermediate passer where Welker runs all his routes. Welker is not even worth grabbing in 16-team fantasy leagues.
Mon, Nov 9, 2015 05:58:00 PM

The Rams will work out free agent WRs Wes Welker, Hakeem Nicks, and Vincent Brown on Monday.

It feels like Nicks has worked out for every team in the NFL at this point, but he has yet to find a job. Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Welker looked "quick" at his workout with the team in September, but they decided to stick with Dwayne Harris as their slot receiver. Even if any of this trio signs with St. Louis, they will not be worth fantasy consideration. Nick Foles has not thrown for more than 200 yards since Week 1.
Mon, Nov 9, 2015 12:31:00 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reported the Giants are working out Wes Welker and Hakeem Nicks on Tuesday.

The Giants are likely just updating their emergency list. This is the first reported workout for Welker since the spring. Welker has said he is healthy and wants to continue playing, but he has a concerning concussion history and was ineffective with the Broncos last season. Hakeem Nicks has worked out for several teams since being released by the Titans at final cuts.
