Wes Welker preparing for 2015, not mulling retirement

Denver Post - [Full Article]

Contrary to a report last week, Broncos receiver Wes Welker is not mulling retirement.

Welker, who ranks 20th all time among receivers with 890 career catches, said Monday he intends to play on.

"Just getting ready for 2015," Welker told The Denver Post via text.

FoxSports.com cited sources in its report on Feb. 10 that Welker was considering retirement.

"Never ever came out of my mouth," Welker said.

Where Welker plays is uncertain. He becomes an unrestricted free agent on March 10.

Fantasy Impact: 

Welker's numbers were way down last year (49-464-2) compared to his first season in Denver (73-778-10) even though he played one additional game. The Broncos' pass attempts dropped by 10 percent, and Welker's targets took the biggest hit. We don't expect him to be back in Denver, especially if the team is serious about getting Cody Latimer more involved. Emmanuel Sanders can play the slot with (free agent) Demaryius Thomas and Latimer playing on the outside.
