Wes Welker and New England Patriots fail to reach agreement
 
The New England Patriots and wide receiver Wes Welker failed to reach an agreement on a long-term contract, via a source.
The two sides had until 4 p.m. ET on Monday to hammer out a long-term contract since the Patriots had placed the franchise tag on Welker, which he already had signed.
Without a new deal, Welker will earn a guaranteed $9.5 million in 2012. If the Patriots decline to tag him next year, he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
Welker arguably had his best season in 2011, catching 122 passes for a career-high 1,569 yards and nine touchdowns, which was also a personal best. However, a dropped pass late in Super Bowl XLVI tarnished the campaign.

That SB drop wasn't all on him. It was a fair to poor throw to start with, certainly catchable but come on...it was 2nd down with over 4 min left. It was not a do or die situation.

It became a do-or-die situation in one helluva hurry when that ball hit the turf!!

Glad this story is about Welker and not Brees.

Yeah, since Brees joined the Chiefs we're losing interest ... :)

Dumb, maybe next year he'll be in New Orleans.
