Welker on 13 catches: 'Nice to stick it in Bill's face'

Wes Welker joined CSNNE's Patriots Postgame Show to talk about the team's win over the Broncos and the Patriots hurry-up offense. He also got in a playful shot at his coach, Bill Belichick.

CSNNE's Mike Felger asked Welker how it felt to come out and grab 13 balls on Sunday compared to just the three receptions he had in Week 1.

"Yeah it's kind of nice to stick it in Bill's face once in a while," Welker said with a smile and wink. "So this is definitely a good one."

Andrew Hawkins celebrates joining Patriots with 'Ballers' spoof

Andrew Hawkins' situation isn't far off from a character in HBO's "Ballers." And he played into those connections with a video on Twitter.

The slot receiver, who signed with the Patriots on Wednesday, shares some similarities with the fictional football player Rickey Jerret, a veteran receiver who wades through interest from a number of teams, including New England, during free agency. Because of those similarities, Hawkins spoofed on a scene from "Ballers" where Jerret works out with Patriots receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Hawkins imposes his face over Jerret's.
