Wes Welker may decide to retire after Super Bowl

The Denver Broncos have a lot of old guys on there roster and there’s really no way to skate around that fact. Old guys retire, it’s a fact of the NFL, but one of those old guys who isn’t yet ready to retire is Wes Welker. Speaking this week about about his future, Welker stated that while he hasn’t made an official decision, he doesn’t think he’ll be retiring unless he has to.

Via the Boston Herald:

“I think so. We’ll see what happens,” Welker said. “I’ve definitely been blessed with 10 more years than I ever thought I would play in the NFL. I’ll just keep on playing until they tell me I can’t anymore.”

Welker’s NFL future is going to be the subject of a lot of debate this offseason. While Welker can clearly still play, his string of concussions this year and throughout is career have many wondering if it’s in the best interest of his health to call it a career after the Super Bowl.

Something people for get is that Welker has never won a Super Bowl before, and he now has an opportunity to go out on top and salvage what health he has left.
