(NEW YORK) — Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker is well prepared for anything head coach John Fox will throw at him this season.
The Broncos signed Welker during the offseason to a two-year, $12 million deal and took him away from Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
And although Welker is with a new team, he spoke with Sports Illustrated about his days under former coach Bill Belichick.
“It was just kind of hard,” Welker told the magazine. “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.”
Belichick is the king of keeping his players quiet with the media, but Welker admitted even though he’s in a new home, he still does his best to say little.
“When I’m answering questions from the Denver media, I’m not worried about what the Broncos’ people are going to think,” Welker continued. “I’m worried about what Belichick will think. Isn’t that crazy?”
Welker has 768 career receptions for 8,580 yards and 38 touchdowns during his nine year career in New England.
The Broncos will travel to New England in week 12 to play the Patriots.
