The New England Patriots quarterback star Tom Brady is enjoying his summer. Brady was seen having fun with his Brazilian supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen and the kids in Costa Rica. He’s regarding the batteries and getting ready for some action. So, he wasn’t really attending all the Patriots’ voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) in the offseason. Wes Welker has more on the matter.
Wes Welker made a few comments on Brady’s decision to skip the spring practices organized by the New England Patriots.
The former Patriots receiver and current Houston Texans assistant coach talked about Brady’s absence from the New England’s voluntarily organized team activities (OTAs) in the offseason. The activities are also referred to as a teaching camp for the Pats.
“What are you really teaching Tom Brady at this point? And, you know, if you’re worried about him getting on the same page with the receivers, that’s really why you would have coaches. The coaches are really able to emphasize with those guys what they want them to do. It’s a really good opportunity for those guys to play together without Tom and kind of figure it out,” Welker said. Well, he’s right at this point.
Welker and Brady shared an astonishing rapport. Welker assisted in the slot role in which Troy Brown was super dominant. He played six seasons with the New England Patriots, and had 672 receptions for 7,459 yards and 37 touchdowns.
Welker played well with Brady. It looked super easy, but other players had trouble working with him. Chad Ochocinco and Chad Jackson struggled really hard to adjust to Brady and the New England’s offense.
Other receivers are working on the same issue this season. The Pats will need results from new faces after the trading deal of Brandin Cooks and Julian Edelman’s four-game suspension.
