Wes Welker’s stats elevated to unexpected heights last season. He signed with the Broncos in free agency after a long stint with the Patriots and found incredible success with Peyton Manning. He’s found a way to elevate to new heights. This time he used a plane. Welker rode a F-16 with the Air Force Thunder Birds. His comments afterwards are just as hilarious as the poor guy’s face during.
“The lunch stayed down. Trust me there were times where I wanted to pull the bag out,” Welker said after the flight, via CBS Sports. “But I held strong and I was able to get through it. When I thought we were done, we pulled some more g’s and I told the guys, ‘I’m g’d out man, when are we landing this thing?’
“But it was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed my experience. I don’t know if I’ll be doing it anytime soon again. But I’m glad I did it and definitely enjoyed it.”
He sure doesn’t look like he enjoyed it. I know I wouldn’t have. It looks like the pilot was just toying with him, spinning and rolling like that. But Welker is tough in NFL traffic, so perhaps that fortitude helps up in the air.
