Wes Welker on Tom Brady Roast: Explains Absence and Disappointment in Former Teammate’s Event

While wide receiver Wes Welker has 567 catches for 6,345 yards and 34 touchdowns in 78 games played with Tom Brady, he refused to take any jibes that may have fallen his way during the quarterback’s roast. Many of Brady’s colleagues, including Randy Moss, Rob Gronkowski, and Julian Edelman, were on stage during the ceremony.

Welker, who ranks fourth among Brady’s favorite end zone targets with 38 touchdowns, was noticeably missing. Only Gronk (105), Edelman (41), and Moss (40) have more touchdown receptions from TB12.

Welker, a famous member of the New England Patriots, was widely anticipated to appear on the star-studded night. He defended his absence by stating that he was not up for the sorts of jokes being told, maybe not wanting a few crucial details from his career in New England to be brought back to light.

“I was not requested to provide a presentation. I was told to wait on the sidelines and be roasted, so I’m happy I wasn’t there. “To each their own, I suppose,” Welker said.

The five-time Pro Bowler said that he was “disappointed” with how the roast turned out.

“There was some funny stuff and everything, but you know, it was what it was,” the Miami Dolphins wide receiver coach said.

Brady also had some unfavorable comments about the roast, stating he didn’t enjoy how it impacted his children. He also said that he would never do another one.

Welker played with the Patriots from 2007 to 2012, but never won a Super Bowl. During his career, he also played for the Chargers in San Diego, the Dolphins, the Denver Broncos, and the Rams in St. Louis.
