“Maybe after the season. You don’t have time to do that right now,” he said. “I just try to live in the here and now and worry about what I’ve got to do to get better.”
He’s been plenty good since joining the Patriots, catching more passes than anybody in the NFL, becoming the franchise’s career receptions leader, and setting multiple records along the way: single-game receiving yardage (217), single-season receiving yardage, and almost every mark when it comes to the number of passes he’s caught.
Numbers aside, something else stands out about Welker, Brady said.
“What makes Wes really special is his selflessness as a player,” Brady said. “But the ball always seems to find a way to him.”
Same as it ever was, at least for Welker and the Patriots. They’ve enjoyed a very successful partnership, season after season. Not that he’d compare this one with any other.
“I don’t really think about that at all,” Welker said. “We’re in a good position right now, so everything I’ve got is going into this season and this week’s opponent, so that means San Francisco.”
