Former Tech star says he's cleared, eager to play
Instead of getting ready for a game of his own last weekend, Wes Welker came back to Lubbock to see old teammates and root on his alma mater.
That doesn’t mean the former Texas Tech All-American’s finished with football, no matter how many people want him to retire after a string of concussions the last two years. He’s a free agent at the moment.
Although 34 years old and a first-time dad with six-week-old twins, Welker says he’s still interested in playing if the right opportunity presents itself.
