New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is not a man of many words when it comes to addressing the media especially when it comes to his personal feelings on issues surrounding the team or the game of football. Last week the Patriots lost wide receiver Wes Welker who signed with the Denver Broncos. Many believe it was tensions with Belichick that led Welker out of town. NFL.com reported on Tuesday that Belichick wasn't very sentimental when asked about Welker's departure.
"There are changes every year on every team," Belichick said when asked about life without Welker. It was a response to be expected by the coach who tries not to give too much information to the public. The Patriots head coach did acknowledge Welker's production while with the team.
"Look I think Wes was everything we'd hoped he'd be when we traded for him. He was tough, competitive, and very productive. I think what Robert said yesterday pretty well covered it yesterday."
Belichick was referring to Patriots owner Robert Kraft's comment on Monday that everyone associated with the New England Patriots organization wanted Welker back and he was saddened that the slot receiver was gone.
Welker played six years under Bill Belichick, but the coach feels it's now time to work with another player. He was quoted as saying that he was "looking forward" to working with wide receiver Danny Amendola, who the team signed early last week.
