Tom Brady planning to work out with Wes Welker
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is forbidden from working out with or even talking football with any of his coaches and teammates during his four-game suspension, so he’s calling on one of his former favorite targets to go through some reps with him this weekend.
In an interview with the “Joe Rose Show” on WQAM in Miami Friday, Welker said he is going to be in the Boston area over the weekend and reached out to Brady to set up a dinner date. Brady has plans for Saturday night, but he proposed putting Welker to work instead.
“I hit him up to do dinner Saturday night. He’s like, ‘I’m going to be flying in from Ann Arbor later, but how about that morning we go throw?’” Welker said, via Ben Volin of The Boston Globe. “And I’m just sitting there, I’m like, ‘I was just thinking about dinner, but yeah, sure. I’ll get over there early and we can throw a little bit.”
Welker still has no clue if he’ll get his dinner date.
“That’s the only thing we really have planned,” he added. “It’s just funny. I’m sitting there trying to have dinner. ‘Hey, get your a– up here and let’s go throw.’ I’m like, ‘Aw jeez, man.’ He’s going to have me running like 2-minute drill in his backyard or something.”
Former Patriots running back Kevin Faulk speculated weeks ago that Brady would reach out to Welker and Randy Moss to work out during his suspension. Brady may not have been the one who reached out, but it sounds like it’s still happening.
We assume Brady’s current boyfriend is going to be extremely jealous, but he’ll just have to get over it. No. 12 needs to get his reps in somehow.
