KUSA - There was nothing illegal about the hit. There will be no fine by the National Football League. And Wes Welker remains uninterested in any and all discussion about said event.
"I wasn't worried about it," Welker stagnantly said Friday about the possibility of any sort of reprimand from the league office. The former Patriot collided with Aqib Talib on a crossing route - the New England cornerback was hurt on the play and did not return to the game - and Bill Belichick called him out for the dirty play following the game.
"I just really happy we won the game and I'm really focused on the Super Bowl," he continued.
The NFL deemed the play to be legal - the Broncos have assured there was no intention following the incident - and no repercussions would be given out.
Welker stayed neutral on the subject, even despite being one of New England's most valuable assets for the last four seasons. When asked if he felt any twinge by Belichick bringing attention to the play and causing controversy over it he said, "I don't really have any reaction."
