New England Patriots, Tom Brady and Wes Welker Break Up, Remain Friends

We all have heard the reports that Tom Brady was less than pleased that the New England Patriots let Wes Welker leave town. But despite that business side of football, Wes Welker and Tom Brady will remain friends.

Despite Giselle’s public tirades.

“You go to battle with that guy for the last six years and have such good chemistry and everything else and one of your best friends on and off the field and on the field and everything else,” Welker said on KOA in Denver, via Sports Radio Interviews. “It’s definitely tough to leave that, but at the same time he understands it. I understand it. It’s part of it. We don’t always like it, but it all works out in the end and he wished nothing but the best for me and I’m the same with him.”

But he thinks Denver will give him a chance to succeed, much like Tom Brady and the New England Patriots did.

“Anytime you become a free agent you think about teams that fit you well. I think Denver was definitely toward the top of that list. It was definitely a place I thought and I told my agent that there are very few places that I would be willing to play and Denver is definitely at the top of the list and I was excited about the opportunity and trying to make this happen.”

Aside from Welker the only passing threats the Patriots possessed were two tight ends, no real deep threats. In Denver he has Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker to draw attention and free him up.

“I think that’s a big reason why this was such a good fit for me because of Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker on the outside and everything and really doing some things and the tight ends being a part of the passing game as well and just having those options. It’s a team effort and it never flows through one guy and everybody has gotta be an option and be out there and there you go.”
