Broncos receiver Wes Welker will turn 33 this offseason and is coming off a year in which he suffered two concussions, but he says he’s a long way from retiring.

Asked today if he would like to earn his first Super Bowl ring on Sunday and then ride off into the sunset, Welker said that’s not an option he’s considering.

“Of course it would be a good way to end it, but I am still having fun,” Welker said. “I am still enjoying the game. I feel good, and as long as I am out there having fun, I will continue to play.”

Welker said he believes the NFL is taking the appropriate steps to protect players who suffer concussions, and he’s satisfied that he’s going to be OK whenever he does hang up the cleats.
