The St. Louis Rams are sitting at 4-4 following this week’s loss on the road to the Minnesota Vikings. One thing that the Rams could improve before a potential playoff run is bolstering the wide receiver position, St. Louis appears ready to do just that, as they reportedly worked out Wes Welker.
Welker recently had a phone interview where he expressed frustration that he hasn’t gotten a contract from a team, while other players that he feels are less talented than him are on rosters.
“The frustrating part sometimes is you look out there on the field and you see guys who are playing, and you’re like, ‘I should be playing,'” he said.
St. Louis would be very wise to pick up a proven winner and a veteran like Welker. He could be exactly what the young roster needs to help mentor them and be a leader down the stretch of the season. There is also a good chance that he could end up starting and being a very reliable option for Nick Foles.
Throughout his 10 NFL seasons, Welker has put up consistent production. He has caught 890 passes for 9,822 yards and 50 touchdowns. Welker has also had the chance to play with both Tom Brady and Peyton Manning which has helped mold him into the player that he is today.
It will be interesting to see if the Rams decide to give him a contract offer following his workout.
All of that being said, it’s good to hear that a team is interested in him and hopefully he is able to find a deal and get back on the field this season.
