Wes Welker: I Can ‘Be Myself’ More With Broncos
Wes Welker has a new team, a new quarterback, and now he can get to being himself. Welker is a fun-loving, comical guy, who was once benched by Bill belichick for mocking Rex Ryan during a press conference.
Welker is now in Denver and feeling good about his new surroundings. During a conversation with Yahoo Sports, Welker hinted at “now being able to be himself.”
“I feel like I can be myself a little more for sure,” said Welker, who signed a two-year, $12-million deal with the Broncos on March 13, a day after becoming an unrestricted free agent. Asked if he’d received any pre-interview lectures about what subjects to avoid, Welker laughed and said, “Here? No. … All they told me was, ‘Just be yourself.’ “
Welker may not necessarily be taking a jab at his former team, but he’s seems like he’s definitely happy not having to do things the Patriot way anymore.
