Just when you thought the depth of Wes Welker’s many talents had been revealed — receiving, kick returning, place-kicking, dancing — the pride of Oklahoma City’s Heritage Hall school steps up to the microphone and tries his hand at comedy.
In an obvious shot at Jets coach Rex Ryan’s, ahem, personal life, Welker tried to cram as many foot references into this media interview session Thursday. A sampling of responses, courtesy of Pro Football Talk’s Gregg Rosenthal’s transcription:
Just when you think the chatter between the Patriots and Jets couldn’t get any sillier, Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker stepped to the podium Thursday as if dared to see how many “foot” references he could cram in to a single media session. Behold:
– On this week of preparation: “Everybody’s putting their best foot forward.”
– On young players in the playoffs: “You can’t just stick your toe in the water. You gotta jump right in.”
– On playing this year as opposed to last year: “It’s definitely different. You know, you’ve got your foot up in the air trying to get the swelling to go down. Definitely excited about the opportunity to get out there and have some fun.”
Wes was just warming up. Read the rest of his routine here or watch this:
