For all the “Patriot for Life” talk, now we finally know how the Patriots really feel about Wes Welker. On Tuesday, we found out that Welker hadn’t even been offered a contract. Well, the Patriots finally got around to offering Welker that contract, but according to the Boston Herald, all the offer did was let Welker know that the Patriots don’t really want him.
Wes Welker is off the reservation and the whisper is he finally realized yesterday the Patriots don’t really want him back after their first offer came in laughably low, according to someone familiar with it. Now Welker will explore the league with the understanding that despite what the owner says if the Patriots really liked him — really, really liked him — they would have already signed him.
We’re pretty sure that mild disdain that Welker had for the Patriots has morphed into extreme disdain.
