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 most likely won’t attend the New England Patriots’ mandatory June minicamp if he hasn’t received the long-term deal he deserves. Now he has identified another fight to choose — this time against ex-Patriots linebacker and present 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 keep it actual. Prior to the Patriots, this is a guy who played 3 years, had 96 receptions, never ever had a 1,000-yard season.”
These words didn’t sit nicely with Welker, who sent the following missive at McGinest on Wednesday:
McGinest played for the Patriots from 1994 to 2005, winning three Super Bowls, before ending his profession with 3 seasons in Cleveland. Those final three years apparently left McGinest longing for his days in Foxborough, Mass., as he responded to Welker’s comment with a reminder on how swiftly things can turn for a Patriot.
