The Denver Broncos on Friday exercised their 2014 option on dynamic wide receiver Wes Welker.
Welker, who bolted New England and signed a two-year deal worth $12 million to become a Bronco in March 2013, could pocket $8 million this autumn.
Despite suffering two concussions over a period of four weeks, and sharing the field with standouts Julius Thomas, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, the 33-year-old Welker caught 73 passes for 778 yards and a career-high 10 touchdowns in 13 brilliant contests last season.
Considering Decker’s now employed in East Rutherford as a Jet, expect Peyton Manning to more consistently target Welker.
A four-time All-Pro who has topped the NFL in catches on three occasions, Welker is a fearless route runner with great speed and hands.
Although aging and removed from a couple of traumatic brain injuries, the diminutive badass remains a potent scoring machine.
With Bill Belichick’s nemesis still thriving, Wes Welker and the Denver Broncos should compete in Super Bowl XLIX next February at the University of Phoenix Stadium.by
