Wes Welker, a fan favorite of the New England Patriots, has accepted to move to John Elway’s Denver Broncos. The slot wide receiver reportedly has dealt for a two year contract worth $12 milllion. Originally, it was reported Welker was offered $10 million with incentives for two years by his former team. Now, Welker will be helping Peyton Manning while Danny Amendola, formerly of the St. Louis Rams, joins the Pats for five years for $31 million, $10 million guaranteed.

UPDATE from Boston.com: “Junior Seau, a 43-year old 12-time NFL Pro Bowl linebacker, was found dead today in his home, the result of a gunshot wound, police confirmed.

Police are investigating the shooting at the Oceanside, Calif., residence of the former New England Patriot and San Diego Chargers football star as a suicide. Police confirmed that Seau was found by his girlfriend at his beachfront home with a gunshot wound to his chest.

Police received a call at 9:35 a.m. PST from Seau’s girlfriend, who informed police Seau was unconscious with a gunshot wound, before making their way to Seau’s house and performing “life saving” efforts on him in his bedroom, according to police. A handgun was found.”


Junior Seau was 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker, aged 43, played for the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots from 1990-2009. There was apparently a shooting in his home and Seau was unfortunately found dead. RIP. Will be updating once there’s more information.
