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.

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