Wes Welker isn’t just Tom Brady‘s longtime favorite receiving target. He’s also starting to put together some impressive career numbers himself.
As the Patriots prepare to take on the Texans on Sunday — in a game that’s looked at as both a major test and a measuring stick for New England — Welker is closing in on a personal milestone himself. With eight more catches on the season, Welker can become the first receiver in NFL history with five seasons of 100 or more catches. Welker is leading the league right now with 92 catches, one more than Chicago’s Brandon Marshall.
Check out what Welker and special teams teammate Matthew Slater had to tell NESN Daily in the video above.
