Patriots owner Robert Kraft is at the Rockefeller Center in New York City today for the NFL's announcement of a "head health initiative," and reporters on the scene have asked him about Wes Welker.

"We want Wes," Kraft said, according to the New York Post. "We really do."

If the Patriots don't want Welker enough, he'll hit free agency tomorrow at 4 p.m. Kraft's comments are like the many he has relayed over the last year and a half, but the timeliness is obvious.

Kraft also said, "I love Wes Welker," according to ESPN. "I hope he remains a Patriot for life, just like Tom Brady."

There hasn't been much new information on the negotiations in recent days. To circle back to everything that's known, both sides want to remain together.
