Watch Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady incriminate Denver Broncos Wes Welker

Published 1 Comments

Denver Broncos Wide Receiver Wes Welker has been a much discussed name in the NFL in recent days after he was punished for some uncharacteristic crimes.

In a summer where many NFL players have been issued with four game bans for substance abuse, Welker was a fairly surprising name in the mix.

As one of the most experienced and respected Wide Receivers in the league, Welker has the admiration of many - Broncos fans and beyond.

Everybody seems to have had an opinion on Welker's 'little indiscretion' and perhaps the most telling has come from his former Quarterback.

The man on whom the hopes of New England have hung for many years, Tom Brady was recently asked about Welker's situation and his reaction was, well, somewhat telling.

The New England Patriots Quarterback tried his best to distance himself from his AFC rival but in the end, his serious face abandoned him.

A telling expression?

Talking to the Boston Herald ahead of the Patriots week one game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Brady tried not to have an opinion on the Wes Welker issue.

When asked for his opinion, he said: "I don't have a lot of thoughts or opinions on that.

He continued "That's Wes' situation and their team."

The telling question however came after he was asked if while attending the Kentucky Derby - the event which caused the accusations, Brady saw Welker using any substances.

Rather than keeping a straight face, Brady couldn't withhold his laughter and eventually said "I got no comment on that."

Not the most convincing of answers from Brady and the meaning behind his awkward laughter and lack of a comment is open to speculation.

Plenty to worry about

During his refusal to comment on the subject, Brady claimed he had enough to worry about with this team (Patriots).

He may have a point as his New England side enter a season having lost their second consecutive AFC Championship game and trying to battle an even stronger looking Denver Broncos team.

They travel to Miami to take on their AFC East rival Dolphins on Sunday, a game which they lost last season and was a major factor in their play-off seeding.

They lost 24-20 in their final regular season defeat last year and will surely be hoping to start with a win this weekend.
