Well the Broncos may just be my favorite in the AFC to win the Super Bowl, they were last year. Unlike the foolish Ravens, who wasted their money on Joe Fluke-o and now the teams is dissolving in front of everyone’s eyes; the Broncos are only getting better. I wonder how cry baby Brady is really feeling about Welker leaving for Denver. Sorry New England but you will miss this guy.
One day after leaving the New England Patriots via free agency, new Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker was introduced in Denver and said splitting with quarterback Tom Brady was the most difficult part of the move.
“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.”
Welker agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with Denver on Wednesday. The deal also includes $150,000 in incentives in each year if he catches 90 passes, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Welker, who has 768 career receptions for 8,580 yards and 38 touchdowns, said joining a winning team was important in his decision-making process. The other team that pursued Welker was the Tennessee Titans, a source familiar with the situation said.
“I felt Denver would be a great fit for me with their offense and how they run things and everything else,” Welker said. “They have a great quarterback, a great team. They went 14-2 last year. They’re a great team and I want to win. I felt like it was a good opportunity to me.”
