Well, this will go over well back in Boston.
During his introductory press conference in Denver, former Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker said his desire to win drove him to pitch the idea of his signing to Broncos executive John Elway.
Asked what Elway said to sway him, and Welker turned the tables.
“I was the one pitching to him,” Welker said, via the Denver Post.
Asked what that that pitch entailed, he replied: “That I want to win, that above everything.”
Welker did his best to avoid any controversy, saying all the right things about Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
But he kept coming back to all the winning he was going to do with the Broncos.
“Denver, I felt, would be a great fit for me,” Welker said. “They’re a great team and I want to win.”
Yeah, that’s probably being chiseled into a stone, rather than written on a bulletin board in New England.
