Wes Welker's a talented tweeter.In fewer than 140 characters, the freshly franchised Patriots wideout was able to A) express his feelings about being franchised B) show there's no outward agitation with the team for not getting a deal done by now and C) made it clear he wants to be here long-term.Glad that I will be a Patriot in 2012. and hopefully '13,'14,'15,'16,'17,'18..........

The Patriots franchised Welker Monday afternoon. The two sides can continue working toward a long-term deal until July 15.
