Wes Welker enters his first season as an offensive and special teams assistant coach with the Houston Texans in 2017. It will be his first year coaching in the NFL.

Welker played 12 seasons with the San Diego Chargers (2004), Miami Dolphins (2004-06), New England Patriots (2007-12), Denver Broncos (2013-14) and St. Louis Rams (2015). One of the most decorated undrafted players of all-time, Welker was elected to the Pro Bowl five times (2008-12) and led the NFL in receptions three times (2007, 2009, 2011). He also holds the record for most receptions by an undrafted player in NFL history (903) to go along with 9,924 career receiving yards and 50 career receiving touchdowns.

Welker was selected to the Pro Bowl or All-Pro Team in every season of his Patriots career. He holds numerous franchise records for New England, including the five highest single-season reception totals in Patriots history (2007-09, 2011-12) and the franchise record for receiving yards in a season (1,569 in 2011). Additionally, Welker holds the franchise records for most receptions in a single game (16), most receiving yards in a single game (217), longest reception (99 yards) and most career receptions (672). Welker was the first player in NFL history to put together five 100-reception seasons and still the only player in NFL history with five 110-reception seasons.

To  begin his NFL career (2004-06), Welker put up the second most all-purpose yards (6,216) in NFL history in a player’s first three seasons, trailing only Gale Sayers, and still holds the Dolphins all-time records for total kickoff returns (166), kickoff return yardage (3,756) and total punt returns (127). Welker spent the 2013 and 2014 seasons with the Broncos, where he participated in his third Super Bowl, and then played eight games for the Rams in 2015 before retiring from the NFL.

Over his four-year career at Texas Tech University, Welker totaled 259 receptions for 3,019 yards and 21 touchdowns to go along with 79 rushes for 456 yards and two touchdowns. He also scored eight touchdowns returning punts in his college career, which is still tied for the NCAA record. In 2003, Welker won the Mosi Tatupu Award, given annually to the best special teams player in college football, and was named to the Sports Illustrated All-Decade Team as a punt returner.
