Patriots | Would not negotiate with Wes Welker

The agency that represents Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker released a statement Tuesday, March 18, saying the New England Patriots made just one offer to Welker during free agency, a "take it or leave it" proposition that left them no alternative but to go on the market and shop for a deal elsewhere. "Specifically, both sides are clear that the Patriots made one offer to Wes Welker since the prior negotiations ended in July 2012," the statement read. "Both sides also agree that this two-year offer came just hours before the start of free agency despite discussions that began at the NFL (Scouting) Combine. Moreover, this lone offer was presented as a 'take it or leave it offer.' When we asked if there was room for structural changes, we were told no."
