Sources tell Ian Rapoport of NFL.com that talks between free agent Wes Welker and the Patriots are "over at this point."
Rapoport is former Patriots beat writer. He goes on to say that fellow free agent slot receiver Danny Amendola is "waiting in the wings," a potential hint that the Pats don't consider Welker a priority any longer. Based on Welker's early-season usage and the lack of progress on a new deal throughout the offseason, it shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Welker's market around the league won't be scorching hot as a scheme-dependent, 31-year-old niche player.
