Welker able to be himself in Colorado compared to a regimented system with the New England Patriots.
Wes Welker has told reporters how much he is enjoying his time with his new team in Denver, and how happy he is that he can finally be himself when talking to the media.
Whilst spending the last six season with the New England Patriots, Welker became part of the strict ‘Patriot way’ which sees players take a more passive approach to the way they conduct themselves in front of the media and in their personal lives.
Welker though said that he was enjoying his new found freedom in Denver, and said how it was one of the main reasons he chose the side.
“I feel like I can be myself a little more for sure,” Welker is quoted as saying on NFL.com.
He then went on to say how important the prospect of playing with Peyton Manning was, and that having the opportunity to play with the future hall of fame candidate was too good to turn down.
“I mean, really, that was kind of by design,” Welker said of becoming Manning’s teammate.
“There weren’t too many quarterbacks that I would’ve gone out there and played with.”
Welker is projected to become the teams slot receiver in the high powered offence led by Manning, with the 32-year old signing a two year deal with the AFC West champions.
