Welker puts failed negotiations in past

FOXBOROUGH – When he signed the franchise tender from the Patriots in May, Wes Welker said he was taking a leap of faith, hoping that the team could eventually work out a long-term agreement. That deal never came to fruition, but after taking the field for the first day of training camp, Welker said he wasn't disappointed.

“Everyone tried,” Welker said. “I tried. They tried, and it just didn't work out. It's in the past, and we've moved on to this season, which we expect to be a good one. We're working towards it, and working hard to have a great season this year.”
