Wes Welker is one of the few players that's actually glad there's a lockout. Well, sort of. In Welker's eyes, the lack of an official schedule set forth by the NFL and its teams is a good thing, allowing him to work on his own schedule.â†µ
"It's awesome because I'm on my own schedule," said Welker, who led the NFL with 123 receptions in 2009. "I don't have to talk to anybody; I don't have to see anybody. You see some of the same faces all the time. It's kind of nice not to have to look at them anymore and see them. I'm kind of enjoying it.â†µ
"I like being able to train on my own and be able to do some of my things. It's good to be with the team, but it's kind of nice."â†µ
Interesting comments from the Patriots' wide receiver to say the least. Hopefully, Welker will keep himself in game shape and be ready for the 2011 NFL season, whenever it begins.
