FILE - In this Aug. 28, 2014, file photo, Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker (83) watches the action from the sideline in the second half of a NFL preseason football game against the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas. The NFL reached an agreement with the players association on changes to its performance-enhancing drug policy, including the addition of human growth hormone testing, which will allow the Welker and two other previously suspended players to return to their teams this week.
