It didn't take long for former Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker to find a new home. A day after free agency opened, the five-time Pro Bowler agreed to terms on a contract with the Broncos, leaving Tom Brady behind in New England and teaming up with Peyton Manning in Denver. Welker has topped the 100-catch mark five times in the past six seasons, so how will he fare in the Mile High City, catching passes from another future Hall of Famer?
Don't know what you got 'til it's gone?
Welker was the biggest constant in an ever-changing receiving corps for the Patriots.
Welker was a pass-catching machine in New England, racking up 672 receptions in six seasons.
Bang for the buck
Mike Wallace got a big-money deal from the Dolphins, but his production has paled in comparison to Welker's.
Big names leaving Boston
What'll be harder for Boston fans: seeing a clean-shaven Kevin Youkilis in pinstripes or watching Welker catch passes from Manning?
