You should probably throw up a stop sign on that Wes Welker and Mike Mayock buddy cop screenplay you've been working on.
With the NFL Scouting Combine winding down, Welker took to Twitter on Monday to share his feelings about the NFL's version of a meat market.
First day of watching the combine. What a waste of time! Just watch the film.â Wes Welker (@WesWelker) February 27, 2012
Of course, our friends at NFL Network -- who provide exclusive coverage of the combine -- shouldn't take this personally. Surely, Wes is referring to the idea of the combine, an event he wasn't invited to after graduating from Texas Tech in 2004.
Welker has earned the right to make such a critique. The receiver is edging into Hall of Fame territory, despite going undrafted and unnoticed before catching on with the Chargers as a special teams player. He's averaged 111 catches during his five seasons with the Patriots, proving definitively you don't need to shine in the combine or have extraordinary measurables to become a star.
Finally, it's our duty to tell you Welker has replaced his mustache with a goatee, at least on his Twitter avatar. He now looks like a cross between a "Friends" extra at Central Perk and that one dude from Color Me Badd. That is all.
