Wes Welker has had quite a few outstanding seasons recently. Though maybe you’ll always think of Welker of nothing more than a possession receiver, he’s put up fantastic numbers the past four years (an average of 108 catches, 1,134 yards and 5.5 touchdowns in 15.25 games since 2007).

Still, Welker can’t shake the thought that he’s looked at as inferior to other top-line wide receivers. That’s what he thinks about when he’s training in the off-season. That’s what gives him motivation.

“I still feel like there’s a lot of doubters that I can’t do a lot of things on the field and that my value isn’t as great as a lot of the other guys out there,” Welker told CBSSports.com’s Mark Morgan in the below video. “There’s always something to prove and work on and get better at.”

Wait a minute, Morgan asked him. There are people who still doubt what you can do? Even with the numbers you’ve accumulated?

“I’m sure there are,” Welker said. “There’s no doubt. They’ll always try to (argue the numbers).”

Morgan also discussed Welker’s impending free agency (after he makes $2.5 million this season, his contract is up with the Patriots) and if he’d like to remain with New England.

“Of course I want to stay here,” Welker said. “I love playing here. But right now, I’m focused on this year and focused on what we need to do as a team to get better.”

There’s plenty more of fodder in the video, so make sure you click the play button below.

VIDEO: Welker draws motivation from non-believers

He'll obviously never head into the commentator's booth after his playing career, but I love having him on my team.  I was the only one of my friends more excited about the acquisition of Welker from the Dolphins (where he had impressed me greatly when they used him, which they didn't do often enough) than I was about getting Moss from the Raiders.  I looked a bit silly that first season (though not too silly, Welk had an amazing year himself) but history has bared it out.
