Today is Wes Welker’s 31st birthday. If things remain the way they are heading into next season, 2012 should be a good year for Welker. If my worst case scenario from age 31 to 32 was making a cool $9.5 million, I would be one happy man. Like everyone else in the NFL, however, Wes wants long-term financial security. He may wind up holding out of Patriots training camp because of it (much to the chagrin of a certain former Patriots linebacker), or New England could just give Welker the birthday present he essentially asked them for on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

Well played, sir. While I doubt Robert Kraft is the person in charge of the Patriots official Twitter account, perhaps someone will pass that memo along to him.
