Wes Welker says he isn't retiring soon


Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker isn’t considering retiring, despite facing his 33rd birthday and suffering a pair of concussions. He could walk away with a story book ending, but he isn’t ready to walk away.

“Of course it would be a good way to end it, but I am still having fun,” Welker said, via Pro Football Talk. “I am still enjoying the game. I feel good, and as long as I am out there having fun, I will continue to play.”

Welker also said that the he believes the NFL is doing enough to protect players dealing with concussions.

“It has been great to see that they are trying to take the steps forward to take care of the players, especially since you are not getting those concussions back-to-back. The closer together you have them, the worse it is. They are scary deals and I have friends that I have played with that tell me they have issues with it now. It is one of those things that you have to deal with and try to make the best decision for yourself.”
