Welker is set to meet with the Dolphins on Wednesday, NFL.com reports.

Free agent interest in the 33-year-old wideout has been cool thus far, but if Welker returns to Miami -- where he played between 2004 and 2006 -- he could provide the team with valuable depth and experience, though his days of racking up elite numbers out of the slot are probably over. In 14 games for the Broncos in 2014, Welker caught 49 passes for 464 yards and two TDs.

Welker is unlikely to be back with the Broncos in 2015, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.

Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are entrenched as the top two wide receivers, and the Broncos presumably want 2014 second-round selection Cody Latimer to be a part of the offense in his second season. Even if he does end up back with the Broncos, Welker will likely just be fourth or fifth on the depth chart, after undeniably declining over the past two seasons.

Welker denied reports that he was considering retirement Monday, telling the Denver Post that he is "just getting ready for 2015."Welker has dealt with numerous concussions over the past few years and is coming off a season in which he caught only 49 passes for 464 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games, his lowest yardage total since 2005. He'll become a free agent next month, and while the Broncos could re-sign him, it appears more likely that they'll try to get 2013 second-round pick Cody Latimer more involved in the offense behind Demaryius Thomas -- who is likely to be hit with the franchise tag -- and Emmanuel Sanders.

Welker is reportedly considering retirement, foxsports.com reports.Between a series of head injuries that he has endured over the past few seasons and his declining production of late, the report indicates that Welker has entertained the notion of calling it a career. For his part, a day after the Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs, when asked about a potential return to the team, the wideout replied,"I don't know. There are a lot of things I've got to figure out in the offseason." Meanwhile, the Denver Post speculates that it's unlikely that the Welker will return to the Broncos. The 33-year-old slot receiver, who is in line to become a free agent next month, caught 49 passes for 464 yards and two TDs in 14 games this past season.

Welker had two catches on two targets for 42 yards Sunday against the Raiders.

After catching 73 passes on 111 targets for 778 yards and 10 touchdowns in 13 games last season, Welker really struggled this year, catching 49 passes on 64 targets for 464 yards and two scores. Quarterback Peyton Manning greatly prefers to throw to wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, plus tight end Julius Thomas, leaving fewer targets for Welker as they head into the playoffs.

Welker (ankle) had two catches on three targets for 16 yards Sunday against the Chargers.

The Broncos ran the ball 39 times versus only 22 pass attempts, and with Demaryius Thomas getting 11 targets, there just weren't enough balls to go around for Welker to make much of an impact. Welker has scored just two touchdowns all season, and he's failed to reach even 20 receiving yards in three of the last four games, making him a very unreliable fantasy option in Week 16 against the Bengals.

Welker (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Welker is out there, as expected, but with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders also in the Broncos' wideout mix, the veteran slot man has been a hit-or-miss fantasy option of late.

Welker (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, the Broncos' official site reports.

Welker should be a go Sunday after practicing fully Friday, but his production this season has been sporadic, with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders also in the Broncos' wideout mix.

Welker (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.

Welker thus appears to be on track to play Sunday against the Chargers. He's coming off a six-catch, 82-yard effort in Week 14, but his production this season has been sporadic, which limits his utility to deeper formats.

Welker (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.

We'll revisit Welker's status Thursday, but the report suggests that the wideout should be ready to play Sunday against the Chargers. Welker caught six passes for a season-high 82 receiving yards in Week 14's win over the Bills.
