  • Is this Wes Welker's final season with Denver Broncos?

    - Is this Wes Welker's final season with Denver Broncos? -

    "Wes Welker's departure to Denver was one of the seismic events of last offseason. That's why it's strange to consider that Welker's time with the Broncos is almost up.

    Welker's two-year deal with Denver ends after this season, and The Denver Post believes it likely will be Welker's final year with the team. We agree.

    The Broncos drafted Cody Latimer and signed Emmanuel Sanders in the offseason. Sanders is best used out of the slot, where Welker exclusively plays. Tight end Julius Thomas is essentially another slot receiver that should be on the roster for a long time." ...

    Highly possible. He has a big upside, but a history with head injury. That's why Broncos only did a 2 yr deal in the first place. A lot depends on the cap, but if he demands the $ like Decker did I'd say he walks. Manning's future with Broncos/ Retirement will play a big role too.

      He has the head injuries and is getting older. I think this is his last year with us and would not be surprised if he retires after this year, especially if he gets hurt again

        It sure appears to be that way. Welker getting all these concussions and getting older he might just decide to retire after this season.

          I don't know why people keep claiming he has had all of these concussions. Up until this past season he had NEVER been diagnosed with a concussion. So he has had exactly 2.

            Apparently Sanders and Manning are doing some interesting things many of the from the slot.

            Sanders apparently is almost unstoppable getting off the LOS..
            But then it is the OTAs where little if any contact is made.

              I believe it has been carved in stone. Elway is not going to pony up a long term contract to keep Welker at age 33. With the addition of Sanders and the draft, Welker is more or less a bandage at the moment.

                It will be up to Wes. Does he want to play in 2015? If he does, I don't think it will be much of an issue to sign him to a one year deal to have him play out his final season with Peyton, who is probably also done after 2015.

                  The odds say Welker would probably only look to play one last season in 2015, which is easily done. The question is his health and the concussion issue.

                    I feel it will be welkers last season for 2 reasons

                    1.) I feel that Latimore is going to development very nicely his rookie year and solidify himself as a #2 WR going into next year, which would mean movie sanders to the slot (where he could be deadly)

                    2.) I also think this will be mannings last year no matter what. I don't have any solid facts to back this up but rather a guy feeling. If manning does retire it completely changes the type of players the broncos would keep, since they would not longer be all in on one season but rather focused on building a playoff team for the next 10+ years.

                      When I personally say concussion issues it is because he suffered two so close together. To me that is worse than just having "just 2"

                        I think that they have been focused on building a playoff team for the next ten years since they took over. Not once have they put all there eggs in one basket and have signed very friendly contracts to the free agents they do bring in.

                          It could, as always, depends on the $$ though.

                          If Peyton plays in 2015, i could see him take less to stay another year, although i think the plan is for DT, Latimer and Sanders to be the top 3 in 2015.

                            I agree, and Elway is most likely going to try and shed money to increase the cap space so that the broncos can make good offers to DT and JT

                              I think Welker goes out with Peyton, however it happens
