Patriots | Want Wes Welker to take less money

The New England Patriots want franchise free-agent WR Wes Welker to take less money in a long-term contract in order to continue playing with QB Tom Brady. Welker would like a deal that guarantees him just below the $21 million he would get paid playing two years under the franchise tag. Patriots owner Robert Kraft said both sides want to agree to a deal but it has to make sense financially for both sides.
