No player in the NFL has caught more regular-season passes since 2007 than Welker's 554, which included a league-high 122 receptions for 1,569 yards and nine touchdowns in 2011. It was Welker’s sixth season with the team, and the offseason was dominated by the ability of the sides to come together on a long-term contract for several months. One of the most amazing aspects about Welker’s production has been his consistency from a position that often sees big games come in spurts, even from the elite players. Consider that he has caught at least 111 passes in four of the past five years -- the exception being 86 receptions in 2010 when he only started 11 games. Even more impressive is the game to game consistency. Welker caught at least five passes in 14 of 16 regular-season games last year and had at least seven in half the games to go along with eight 100-yard outings. He did go a four-game stretch without a touchdown in an offense that features a pair of red-zone tight end threats, but the week to week numbers Welker puts up will continue.
