Wes Welker angry at ‘bush league’ treatment of retired players

Former Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker is unhappy with the NFL’s treatment of retired players seeking medical attention.

Welker recently filed for a disability in the line of duty in the NFL and the league wrote a letter to the former catcher advising him that “there were no records indicating that the surgeries were performed at the from injuries sustained while playing in the NFL. .”

The league asked Welker to provide records proving the surgeries were related to NFL injuries, but it’s clear he wasn’t satisfied with the request.

“@NFL I don’t have the time or patience for this,” Welker wrote on his Twitter page. “I was an NFL employee for 18 years and still active. It’s bush league stuff!

Welker, 41, played for five teams during a 12-year NFL career, including a two-year stint with the Broncos from 2013 to 2014. He is now the wide receivers coach for the Miami Dolphins.
