Former Patriot Wes Welker redefined himself as a receiver here in New England while catching passes from Tom Brady, but his final season apparently was one of his most difficult as a member of head coach Bill Belichick’s football team.
Welker obviously became a free agent this offseason and was unable to reach an agreement with New England to keep him here, and as a result he signed with the Broncos.
In the most recent issue of Sports Illustrated Welker talked about what his final season was like under Belichick, and said that it Â was ‘kind of hard’ and that it was to the point where he said he had to ‘endure him’.
Toward the end in New England, Welker says Belichick got on him in a way he never had before, admonishing him in front of the team.Â âIt was just kind of hard,âÂ Welker says,Â âone of those deals where you have to endure him, put up with him. . . .But he does it to everybody, itâs the way he is.âÂ (PAGE 34) Belichickâs ways still affect Welker.Â âWhen Iâm answering questions from the Denver media, Iâm not worried about what the Broncosâ people are going to think,âÂ Welker says.Â âIâm worried about what Belichick will think. Isnât that crazy?âÂ (PAGE 34)
