Welker Voted Offensive Captain

Posted Sep 19, 2013

With Ryan Clady on injured reserve, the team voted Wes Welker the new offensive captain.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos lost an offensive captain when Ryan Clady headed to injured reserve.

Since it happened so early in the season, Head Coach John Fox said the team decided to vote for a new captain Thursday morning.

And Wes Welker was the recipient of the title.

Welker, a first-year Bronco, was never voted a captain in New England, and was honored to learn of his teammates' vote.

“I think it’s one of the greatest honors you can have on a football team," he said. "I’m honored to have it and hopefully represent it well and just try to help lead these guys by example and go out there and play hard and help them win games.”

The fact that his teammates respected him enough already to give him that title stood out to Welker.

“It means a lot," he said. "Just coming in here, trying to work hard and set an example. Just do whatever I can to help the team win. It’s nice to see that the guys see that and it’s definitely a great honor."
