Wes Welker (born on May 1, 1981 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) is a former American football wide receiver, and current special teams assistant coach for the Houston Texans. He played college at Texas Tech and was undrafted but signed by the San Diego Chargers in 2004, but was later released. He then signed with the Miami Dolphins. He is the first player to ever convert a field goal, convert an extra point, record a tackle, and field both a punt and kickoff in the same game. Welker holds the two highest single-season reception totals in New England Patriot's history. He shared the 2007 single-season receptions honor with T. J. Houshmandzadeh.
