Wes Welker gets good news medically

Free agent wide receiver Wes Welker has been cleared by a concussion expert, Dr. Stanley Herring, the veteran slot wideout told KUSA in Denver. Welker has a history of concussions. "I knew there were concerns out there but on top of that I wanted to know for my own peace of mind," Welker said. "If there was something wrong, I wanted to know. The doctor said some people are able to take those hits. They get up and are able to come back from them. And there's some people who get them and they're never the same. "For me, everything came out all good. My cognitive tests were good. All kinds of tests came out good. I had a trip to Miami and they're doctors said everything looked good." Welker has visited the Miami Dolphins, but they signed Greg Jennings. Welker caught just 49 passes last season, but intends to keep playing. "I am 100 percent committed to keep playing," Welker said. "I feel like every day that goes by, the chances are less so. But I want to play. I've enjoyed my time away. I've enjoyed spending time with my wife. But I'm itching. I miss the locker room. I know once the season starts I'll be dying if I'm not playing." Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
