Patriots WR Wes Welker Backtracks From Contract Talks
Wes Welker has shifted into good-soldier mode, telling reporters he will report for organized team activities with the New England Patriots on Monday. The wide receiver met with the media on Saturday at his football clinic in Peabody, Mass., and it didn't take long for questions about his contract to bubble up. Welker said he regretted describing contract dealings with the team as taking a turn for the worse, he clarified that wasn't the case. "That was probably a bad choice of words," he told ESPNBoston.com, adding that talks have stayed the same. Welker acknowledged he signed his franchise tender with hopes of landing a long-term deal with the Patriots. He called it a "leap of faith" on Saturday. Welker told the crowd he's not surprised with how negotiations have progressed with the team. As valuable as he is to the offense, Welker understands he's dealing with an organization that won't bend to meet the demands of its players, a long-term deal might eventually materialize, but Bill Belichick won't be held hostage in the process.

Wonder who whispered those words of wisdom in his ear?
Shut up, show up, sign up for whatever they want to pay up.
It's the best, & only, scenario he has...
Rally 'round tha family...with a pocket full of shells
