Wes Welker Q&A
Earlier today, I spoke with new Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker about a variety of subjects. While Welker wouldn’t take the bait and say something about Jets coach Rex Ryan, whom he famously mocked a few years ago, he revealed that he didn’t pay much attention to Peyton Manning throwing seven touchdowns last Thursday night. Welker also shared his thoughts on whether defensive players are faking injuries more often these days. You can read the Q&A here.
