When the Texans announced their full coaching staff moments ago, one particular name was not on the list.
But Wes Welker apparently has a new home.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle noted the omission and said Welker will “do well with the 49ers.”
The former NFL wideout spent the last two years working in a de facto internship with the Texans.
They blocked him from interviewing with the Broncos last year, but this year he was under no such restrictions this offseason, and interviewed with San Francisco and Green Bay.
Welker, who was Julian Edelman before Julian Edelman was cool, played 12 years in the NFL with the Chargers, Dolphins, Patriots, Broncos, and Rams.
