Robert Kraft describes Wes Welker situation

By James Walker

The Wes Welker saga with the New England Patriots took another turn at the NFL owners meetings Monday. Patriots owner Robert Kraft spoke in detail about the situation and had some interesting tidbits.

Here are several things that stood out:
Kraft is one of the NFL's best owners and certainly one of the classiest. This is unusual for an owner to explain, in detail, how a contract negotiation went down. But Kraft felt it was important to get the team's side out there.

In the end, the results won't change. Welker is now a Bronco and the Patriots have Amendola. Both sides had their chance to explain why the split happened and now it's time to move on.
