Wes Welker has shown great ability in evading defenders during his decorated NFL career. The New England Patriots wide receiver was equally skillful Tuesday in dodging a pointed question during "The Rich Eisen Podcast".
It was a natural opportunity for the Pats wideout to expand on the line of thinly veiled foot-fetish jabs he sent Ryan's way before last season's divisonal playoff meeting, which resulted in Welker's benching for the game's opening possession.
But Welker sidestepped the invitation for controversy, issuing a stream of classic, engineered Pats-speak.
"Good luck on Sunday! Looking forward to it. It's going to be a great matchup," Welker deadpanned, before asking Eisen: "I mean, can you have set it up any more for me there?"
Welker continued. "I ain't gonna bite, Rich. I ain't biting."
Controversy averted. Right?
