Patriots’ Welker Weighs In On Lockout At His Annual Youth Football Clinic

BOSTON (CBS) – Patriots receiver Wes Welker held his third annual youth football clinic at Bishop Fenwick High School Saturday afternoon in Boston.

The clinic was for kids ages 7-14 and Wes was obviously on hand to provide instruction and inspiration.

Welker weighed in on the NFL lockout saying that squabbling over money is ridiculous and he just wants to get back on the field.

“I’m kind of at the same point a lot of the fans are. I’m definitely frustrated,” Welker said. “I want to be out there playing. It gets old just training all the time.”

“Hopefully we can get something fair done and we can move on and get to where we can play some football,” he stated.

“The fact that we’re squabbling about money is kind of ridiculous to me,” said Welker.

The case is currently in front of a federal appeals court.

The court is expected to hear the players’ appeal in June.
