Only two undrafted players in NFL history have caught over 900 passes. What do these two players have in common?


The players are Antonio Gates (955 catches) and Wes Welker (903). Both began their careers with the Chargers. Gates is in his 16th year with the team. Welker was released after one game. Welker signed with Miami, and his career really took over after he was traded to New England in 2007. Welker caught at least 111 passes in five of his six seasons with the Patriots.
