Newly acquired wide receiver Wes Welker recently opened up about his time in New England. Welker sat down with Sports Illustrated and didn't exactly have the nicest things to say about his old head coach Bill Belichick
"It was just kind of hard, one of those deals where you have to endure him, put up with him," Welker would tell SI.
Welker would go on to say, "when I'm answering questions from the Denver media, I'm not worried about what the Broncos' people are going to think. I'm worried about what Belichick will think. Isn't that crazy?"
Despite the portrait Welker painted, it wasn't bad enough for the Oklahoma native to not heavily consider returning to New England, the place he called home for 6 years prior.
"There were only two places I was going to play [Denver and New England]" said Welker.
Back when Welker was still a free agent, the New England Patriots offered a two-year deal worth $10 million. It is believed that Welker felt slighted by the offer. It wouldn't take long after for Welker to accept a two-year deal worth $12 million from the Denver Broncos and the rest is history.
The Denver Broncos travel to New England on November 24th. The match up will not require any extra intensity to stir the pot. Peyton Manning vs Tom Brady and both teams fighting for top rank in the AFC should suffice for the NFL to milk this game for weeks to come. However, with Welker's recent comments, you better believe it'll make it that much better.
