Kraft says Patriots made better offer to Welker

PHOENIX (AP) _ New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says his team's contract offer to Wes Welker was better than what the receiver got in Denver.

Kraft also says Welker's agent, David Dunn, ``misrepresented'' Welker's market value.

When asked about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady being upset that Welker left after Brady reworked his own contract, Kraft adds Monday: ``I don't answer to Tom Brady. He's an important member of the team and we chatted. He has never put a demand'' on the Patriots.

Welker got a two-year, $12 million deal with the Broncos. Kraft says Welker could have received $8 million in the first year of a two-year contract with New England as opposed to $6 million he gets in Denver ``and there is no guarantee that he plays the second year there.''
