Patriots to blame for loss of Wes Welker

Wes Welker didn’t take a leap of faith leaving Foxborough. He was pushed off a contractual cliff by the Patriots.

Welker and the Patriots were locked in a staring match, and instead of blinking, Welker simply turned his gaze out West to the Denver Broncos, who gave him a two-year, $12 million deal Wednesday. Staring contests are a waste of time, and so is trying to get the Patriots to value a player they feel owes them and not the other way around.
