The good news for Welker, is if you are going to leave Tom Brady, Peyton Manning is not a bad backup plan. Better than going to play for the Christian Ponders of the world.
The Patriots didn’t want Welker, so he had to move on and he made he right choice. Here is what he had to say about Brady.
“Yeah, that was definitely probably the hardest part, leaving Tom,” Welker said Thursday. “He’s a great competitor, a great player, a great friend across the board. I wish the best to him.”
“I’m definitely excited about the opportunity,” Welker said. “I’d definitely like to thank New England for the six years there and all the trust and everything they put in me, and the opportunities I got. I’m looking forward to being a Denver Bronco and really trying to help this team win, and getting to play with Peyton [Manning] and a good group of receivers, and a good offense.”
