After spending half a season out of football, veteran wide receiver Wes Welker signed with the Rams. Fisher and everybody else at Rams Park hopes he can be the elixir to their ailing third-down offense, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
There are concerns, obviously, about Welker’s health considering his past concussion problems. And at age 34 — four years older than anyone else on the current Rams roster — Welker has some observers wondering if he still has the quickness and separation skills to be a factor.
Welker, who has been training in Florida, said he has no concerns concussion-wise about taking the field again.
“Not at all,” he said. “I’ve been cleared by the doctors and everything else. Obviously I’m not going to try and look for contact and everything like that, but I’m not thinking about it either.
“I’m out there playing hard and playing the way I need to play to be successful. You start second-guessing yourself out there and that’s when you get in trouble.”
