New England Patriots and former Texas Tech star receiver Wes Welker has made some big catches in his football career and now has a bigger catch off the field.

Welker and Anna  Burns are reportedly engaged according to The Boston Herald on Thursday after he popped the question to her over Christmas.

Burns is the 2005 Miss Hooters International and the two have reportedly been together since early 2010 and have been a low key couple with the exception of a few public appearances, which include a fundraiser at their Foxboro, MA home for Welker's foundation.

Welker and the Patriots take on the New York Giants in Super Bowl 46 in Indianapolis and look to avenge a Super Bowl loss four seasons ago where the Patriots dream of a perfect 19-0 season were dashed in a 17-14 loss to the Giants.

Welker has 122 catches for 1,559 yards and 9 touchdowns on the season and hauled in 9 catches for 136 yards against the Giants earlier this season in a 24-20 Giants win.
