Wes Welker signed with the Broncos on Wednesday, and the most startling thing -- aside from learning that Welker, who seems like he has played in the league for 18 years, is only 31 -- is the relatively modest contract: two years, $12 million. When you realize Brian Hartline signed for 5 years and $30 million, well, you are left scratching your head. Maybe Welker really just doesn't want to play for Bill Belichick anymore?

That said, this obscure fact came up in the midst of all of it. Only three players in NFL history, per this tweet, have caught passes from both Brady and Peyton Manning: Dan Klecko, Torrance Small ... and Jermaine Wiggins.

Welker will presumably the fourth, and the most famous, unless you consider he has never been a subject of Stu's Hunt Down while Wiggins has.
