Wes Welker's tenure in New England may have ended, but the mindset he had in New England -- at least when speaking to the media -- has stayed with him.
Welker is featured in the latest edition of Sports Illustrated, and he told Chris Ballard that he still thinks about his former coach fairly regularly.
“When I’m answering questions from the Denver media, I’m not worried about what the Broncos’ people are going to think,” Welker says. “I’m worried about what Belichick will think. Isn’t that crazy?”
Welker also explained that his relationship with Belichick took a turn last season, saying that Belichick was on him more than ever and admonished him in front of his teammates.
“It was just kind of hard,” Welker said. “One of those deals where you have to endure him, put up with him. … But he does it to everybody, it’s the way he is.”
