Wes Welker isn’t hesitant to stand up for himself when he believes he has been wronged.
He first proved that when he announced he most likely won’t attend the New England Patriots’ mandatory June minicamp if he hasn’t received the lengthy-term deal he deserves. Now he has discovered another fight to pick — this time against ex-Patriots linebacker and existing NFL Network analyst Willie McGinest.
McGinest mentioned Tuesday on NFL Network that he didn’t “like the diva attitude” coming from Welker, adding: “Let’s preserve it true. Prior to the Patriots, this is a guy who played three years, had 96 receptions, never ever had a 1,000-yard season.”
These words didn’t sit well with Welker, who sent the following missive at McGinest on Wednesday:
McGinest played for the Patriots from 1994 to 2005, winning three Super Bowls, prior to ending his career with three seasons in Cleveland. Those final 3 years apparently left McGinest longing for his days in Foxborough, Mass., as he responded to Welker’s comment with a reminder on how speedily issues can turn for a Patriot.
