    Patriots president Jonathan Kraft says Wes Welker could have stayed in New England and made more money than he's making in Denver, if his agent hadn't pushed him to test the market. Kraft said that before Welker hit free agency last year, the Patriots made Welker a good offer that Welker's agent declined. And it was only when Welker wouldn't play ball that the Patriots decided to turn their attention to Danny Amendola. "We still offered Wes before free agency started, more than he ended up getting in the open market," Kraft said, via the Boston Globe.
