Broncos free agency: Wes Welker is headed to Denver

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

John Elway and the Denver Broncos have pulled off another big move. The Broncos have agreed to terms with free agent receiver Wes Welker, formerly of the New England Patriots.

The reports that free agent Wes Welker was on the verge of departing the New England Patriots for the Denver Broncos were accurate. John Elway confirmed on Twitter: Wes Welker is a Bronco.

Bold move by the Broncos.

Welker's career took off when he was traded to the Patriots before the 2007 season. In his first season 112 passes for 1,175 yards and eight touchdowns but that was just the beginning as he would go on to amass at least 111 catches in five of his next six seasons in New England. He has been among the most productive receivers in the NFL over the last half decade. Now he goes from Tom Brady to one of the very few quarterbacks whose career accomplishments can compare to his -- Peyton Manning.
