Wes Welker was not highly touted coming out of college, but after a short time as an unappreciated return man, he got his chance to show what he could do in the NFL as a starting wide receiver. He put up big numbers in New England with Tom Brady and then got the opportunity to team up with Peyton Manning in Denver. Here is a look at five fun facts about this great player.
