Former New England Patriot wide receiver Wes Welker is on his way to meet with the Texans to speak to them about coaching possibilities.
Welker played for the New England Patriots from 2007 to 2012 where he racked up 672 receptions, 7459 yards and 37 touchdowns.

This would be a great thing for Welker whose career ended at the age of 34. We can knock him all we want, but we don’t know what went on when that deal was trying to get done. Welker was a fantastic player and took a beating during his time here in New England. Welker missed just 3 regular season games out of a possible 96 games. The guy was reliable as hell. One post season drop will haunt our dreams, but I’ve moved on from it. The Patriots have won since then, so that took the pain away.
If Welker were to take on a position in Houston, the Texans would furthermore be “Patriots South”. Having guys like Bill O’Brien, Mike Vrabel, Romeo Crennel, Big Vince Wilfork and now Wes Welker.
