Wes Welker isn’t hesitant to stand up for himself when he believes he has been wronged.
He very first proved that when he announced he likely won’t attend the New England Patriots’ mandatory June minicamp if he hasn’t received the extended-term deal he deserves. Now he has identified an additional fight to choose — this time against ex-Patriots linebacker and present NFL Network analyst Willie McGinest.
McGinest said Tuesday on NFL Network that he didn’t “like the diva attitude” coming from Welker, adding: “Let’s maintain it real. Prior to the Patriots, this is a guy who played three years, had 96 receptions, never 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 3 Super Bowls, before ending his profession 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 swiftly issues can turn for a Patriot.
