It's coming up to the end of March and NFL teams are starting to shift their focus away from free agency and on to evaluating players available in the 2015 Draft which is now less than a month away.
Free agency dominates the month of March in the NFL, and if by the end of the month a player still doesn't have a team, then it's pretty clear that there isn't much - or any - interest in him at all.
That seems to be the case for Wes Welker, who is still an available free agent after the Denver Broncos didn't bother offering him a new deal for the 2015 season.
Welker has been steadily on the decline in recent years, and put in his worst season, statistically-speaking, since his rookie year, as he barely scraped together a paltry 464 yards and two touchdowns in 2014.
A recent report from Troy Renck of the Denver Post said that it would be a big surprise if Welker returned to the Broncos next season and that the team haven't had any talks yet with the slot receiver.
It’s easy to see why no teams have brought Welker in for a workout yet. The former Pro Bowler will turn 34 years old before the season and his production has steadily declined, failing to break a thousand yards in either of his seasons in Denver.
So is it time for the undrafted wonder to finally hang up his cleats for the last time? After multiple concussions, his best years behind him and no real interest in his services, retirement certainly looks like the most obvious choice, but only Welker himself will really know when his time is up.
Over to the NBA, where the Atlanta Hawks extended their lead at the top of the Eastern Conference. DeMarre Carroll top scored with 23 in a win against the Bucks last night, but Kyle Korver took the plaudits after he netted an incredible 11 points in 65 seconds of action.
To baseball now, where Chicago Cubs fans were dealt a disappointing blow. Star Cubs prospect Kris Bryant won't be making his Major League debut anytime soon after it was revealed that the team had decided to send him to Minor League camp.
And finally to Soccer, where a young American striker has caused quite a stir. US Under-17 star Haji Wright has decided to join the New York Cosmos in the North American Soccer League, rather than sign with an MLS side. Wright has scored 18 times in 22 youth internationals and has previously trialled with Bundesliga giants Schalke.
