Wes Welker's departure from New England has turned into a classic "he said/he said" back-and-forth. Patriots owner Robert Kraft said New England wanted Welker back and blasted his agents for having him take a smaller deal in Denver. On Tuesday, Welker's agents fired back, saying the only offer the Patriots made Welker was a "take it or leave it" deal that came just hours before the start of free agency. So which side do you believe?
A surprising exit?
The Patriots said re-signing Wes Welker was their top priority in the offseason, but the All-Pro wide receiver quickly bolted for Denver.
The other side
After years of catching passes from Tom Brady, Wes Welker will team up with Peyton Manning.
A great catch
Wes Welker wasn't the only big-name wide receiver changing his address this offseason.
