Wesley Carter “Wes” Welker, American 30-year-old footballer with height 5 ft 9 in (1.75 m) and weight 185 lb (84 kg) is playing in the position of Wide receiver for the New England Patriots of the National Football League. He was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 1, 1981. He has also played for the San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins. Welker played college football at Texas Tech.

Despite being undrafted, Welker has had a successful career to date. Only one player in NFL history, Gale Sayers, had more all-purpose yards in his first three NFL seasons than Welker did with the Dolphins; Welker holds the Dolphins’ all-time records for total kickoff returns, kickoff return yardage, and total punt returns. Welker, who led the league in receptions in 2007 (tied with T.J. Houshmandzadeh) and 2009, also holds the three highest single season reception totals in Patriots history,[1] and is the only receiver in NFL history to record at least 110 receptions in three consecutive seasons (and, in fact, in any three seasons). He has also been selected to the Pro Bowl and/or All-Pro Team in each of his first three seasons with the Patriots.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Welker finished sixth in receptions among wide receivers last seasons. The Texas Tech product has now averaged an impressive 108 receptions and recorded 1,000-plus yards three times over the last four years.
