It should not have been a surprise when Gase invited Wes Welker to come to Miami’s practice on Monday in an advisory role. Being that Welker owns a house about five minutes from where the Dolphins are having OTA’s in South Florida.
Gase was quoted in saying “It’s a good outlet for him. With my history with him in Denver, I love being around him. He’s such a football guy. For him to come out there, and if our guys get one thing from him, I think that’s a great thing for our guys to have.” That’s high praise for a Coach to give a former player who played under him.
Maybe I’m reading too much into this, but this sounds like an invitation for Welker to return to the Dolphins. Now… would that be as a player or would it be in some type of coaching role?
Welker is a free agent and is looking to join a team in some capacity. I am curious on what the loyal FINS fans have to say about this. Is this visit just a coincidence or is there more to it?
