Wes Welker and the Broncos will play the Patriots this season
-- seems like west really played it safe at the Patriot way still in him what are your impressions of that press conference. I honestly just I still feel like he's a little bit in shock that is no longer and and patronize sort of spent sense that this came together very quickly for him. And the fact that he's telling us that he had to sell John Elway on the ideas and becoming a Denver Bronco. Once again reinforces what -- have been talking about Tom -- I've been talking about for the last couple weeks about what's really want to remain in New England Patriot the mere fact that he brought to an -- back to them as well. Obviously I think Wes is gonna hit a big -- I think this is good good fit for him I think John Fox we utilized him well obviously I think Peyton Manning. I'm sure to be able to build chemistry very quickly. I -- a lot of people say well Brady made him but then I -- paid nannies and make him here as well because I expect -- -- a massive production here in Denver. I think he'll loosen up once easier as well I think with us is always had a little side of him that little street. -- playfulness and sometimes. Willingness to criticize the coaching staff that wasn't necessarily appreciated if fox -- -- to be appreciated here either but I could totally see him is not the reins a little bit. Now it becomes a Denver Bronco and kind of gets. -- instituted their system. And that help certainly interestingly urging of the press conference. Tryon might asking about Bill Belichick and what that relationship been like this process again he said the right things saying that they were all good. What do you think really is going on there between Belichick -- well. I think. If there actually was one of his answers where I think he he did show you know hey look we're gonna there's going to be some friction sometimes are both very competitive guys. I'm obviously you look at the first two games of the year when they made a a very strong gesture Wes Welker that he wasn't going to be and being part of their offense anymore and then obviously. -- injured Aaron Hernandez in game two against the Arizona Cardinals and had to put him back in place and then the offense took off and -- three and beyond with -- west. In his primary roles a slot receiver and primary target. For Tom Brady but I clearly I think there are some friction I don't think that there's any question that. Was believed to sort of gotten paid he believed Saddam paid the last offseason he believes he should've gotten paid. Two years ago he never got that contract and that that aren't that I'm in now when you look at it. He took I think what we all believe is a below market deal although not the way the market going out now but certainly. Less than he was enough of last year by the Patriots I think that's going to be a difficult pill for him to swallow. And you can bet that he's going to be geared up. To play the Patriots Wen -- and where we're figured sometime in October at Gillette Stadium so when that schedule comes out he's gonna circled on his on -- count he'll be ready for Bill Belichick of the Patriots.
