Welker says his comments were a joke

The SportsXchange

New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker said on Monday he was joking when he made comments on Sunday that sounded like a dig at Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

"Yeah, it's kind of nice to stick it in Bill's face once in a while. So this is definitely a good one," Welker said when asked if he enjoyed catching 13 passes in Sunday's victory over Denver.

When asked about the comments on Monday, Welker said, according to, "It was a joke. I don't know what to else say about it ... Bill and I have a good relationship."

Belichick didn't have much to say when asked on Monday what Welker meant by his comments.

"You should ask (Welker) about it then, what he meant by it. I don't know," he said.
