Willie McGinest Says To Wes Welker Stop Being A Diva
Former New England Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest spoke his mind on NFL Total Access on Tuesday by letting everyone know what he thinks about Wes Welker holding out and not attending the Patriots voluntary workouts.
“I just don’t like the diva attitude,” said McGinest. “Let’s keep it real: Prior to the Patriots, this is a guy who played three years, had 96 receptions, never had a 1,000-yard season.
“This $9 million-plus that they’re offering is half of his last contract. That’s a lot of money. Let’s not forget that they signed Brandon Lloyd, they signed (Anthony Gonzalez), they signed (Deion) Branch back, they got the two tight ends; they have weapons on that offense. So look, Wes, it’s time to take off the leopard-printed cowboy boots, get off the party tour and get back to work.”
McGinest is saying Welker is a system player and if it wasn’t for Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots offense, he would be a nobody.
