It’s that time of the year again in the NFL; the off season contract talks between players and their teams. Several players in the 2012 off season are currently unhappy with their contract talks, such as running back Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens, quarterback Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints, and wide receiver Wes Welker of the New England Patriots. Welker, who is looking for a long-term deal and a higher paying contract, is upset with the New England Patriots front office over this past week. He has not received a contract that is both long-term or high paying, and he believes his work is going unappreciated by the franchise. Owner Robert Kraft of the Patriots has stated that the team and the representatives of wide receiver Wes Welker are in negotiations for a new deal.
