Wes Welker hits it big, passes out $100 bills at Kentucky Derby

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker makes millions each year on the football field.

But it was his luck at the Kentucky Derby Saturday that made headlines.

The football player reportedly hit it big at the annual event and decided to share the wealth by passing out $100 bills as he was leaving.

“He said he just won the Kentucky Derby and proceeded to walk down the line until the police officer stopped him,” Marc Blanford, one of the lucky recipients, told USA Today. “I think six of us ended up with $100 bills.”

“He just won probably hundreds of thousands of dollars so he just started handing money to people like it was no big thing,” Jeff Novak, another witness, told the newspaper.

We’re wide open, Welker, if you’d like to pass some our way.
