Patriots | Wes Welker might need to take hometown discount

Updating a previous report, the deadline for signing franchise players to long-term extensions came and went Monday, July 16, and the New England Patriots and WR Wes Welker failed to reach an agreement. He'll play under the franchise tag this season, and it would be a surprise if that happened again in 2013. Welker might need to decide between getting paid or playing with QB Tom Brady at a hometown discount for future years.
