Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker won so much money at the 2014 Kentucky Derby he walked out the door dishing out $100 bills. One problem: He took in more money than he was supposed to.

According to TMZ, Welker pulled in an extra $15,000 in winnings because of a machine malfunction.

Welker joined the Dan Patrick Show on Friday and, when asked about the malfunction and whether he would hand money back to Churchill Downs, had a very succinct response.

Well then.

Welker also added Churchill Downs wouldn't have contacted him if he'd been underpaid so it's not fair to demand money in return for a mistake.

While the wideout might have a point, here's betting Churchill Downs doesn't see it that way.
