New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said he wanted Wes Welker back with the Patriots next season.
Welker’s future with the Patriots is uncertain. Because he will be a free-agent after this season, the Patriots have to make him their franchise player for a year or sign him to a long-term deal if they want to prevent him from testing the market.
Brady added: “He’s just a phenomenal player, and he’s been the heart and soul of what our team is all about. He’s been so selfless, and the way that he carries himself and commits himself to help our team win, it’s second-to-none. But like I said, those aren’t my decisions.”
