Turns out, the two both happened to be dining at Capo Restaurant in Boston (a pro athlete hot spot) on Saturday night -- before the Patriots took on the Dolphins at Gillette Stadium.

Unclear what they talked about -- but Welker was telling staffers that he was in town to throw with Tom Brady ... which he did

EXCLUSIVE

James Woods says Colin Kaepernick is a "dirtbag" -- and he's so pissed at the NFL for not punishing the QB over his national anthem protest he's boycotting the league ... FOR LIFE!!

Woods unloaded about the situation to our photog -- "I will never watch the NFL again, ever."

So, why the hostility?

Woods is downright offended by Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the anthem -- and railed against him on Twitter ... calling him a "dirtbag" and a "P.O.S."

Long story short ... Woods wants the 49ers or the NFL to force Kaep out of the league because it would send the message to other players that "tarnishing the flag" won't be tolerated.

TMZ Sports spoke with Terrell's rep, Denise White ... who says the claims made by Candace Suggs in a social media video are flat out untrue. 

FYI, Candace -- who's in the middle of a nasty divorce with Terrell -- claimed the Baltimore Ravens star is refusing to pay for clothes for their 2 young kids and forces them to go to school without lunch money. 

White tells TMZ Sports ... "Terrell takes magnificent care of his children. He is a caring and present father."

"We normally would not respond to such a rant by an ex clearly scorned."

"Terrell is disappointed that his ex would take to social media to try and paint a picture of him as a father who somehow does not take care of his children."

"His children remain his focus and the #1 priority in his life. Terrell is a great father and that can and should never be questioned."
