Wes Welker has always been a bit of prankster, even if that side of him was suffocated a bit during his tenure in New England. That side of him may have peaked in high school, though. Welker, who impressed with nine catches and two touchdowns in his debut with the Denver Broncos, joined the NFL Network’s NFL Total Access on Tuesday night to talk about the Broncos eye-opening Week 1 win. During the interview, Welker was also asked some more lighthearted questions intended to get the often stone-faced receiver to crack a smile. So, host Dan Hellie asked Welker about dressing up as pop star Britney Spears during a pep rally at Heritage Hall High School in Oklahoma City, Okla. Welker, who was a football star at the school from 1996-2000, couldn’t help but smile at the question, even admitting to prank — albeit reluctantly. “Gosh, I’d love to say false there, but I did,” Welker said with a half-smile. “I’d love to say false, but they have me on video. I’ve already bought them off, so you won’t be seeing that anytime soon.” You might not see that video, but if you can watch Welker’s entire NFL Network interview, click here.

RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Ducks score controversial goal

Corey Crawford was pretty upset after Clayton Stoner scored and he had every reason to be. As he was reaching for the puck, Crawford’s glove was bumped by Jakob Silfverberg. The officials appeared to miss the contact completely and the goal counted. Plays like these will benefit from the future addition of a coach’s challenge. (H/T Reddit Hockey) The post Video: Crawford’s...

Braves, Dodgers complete six-player swap

It took a little while to get here, with an unexpected obstacle or two, but we’ve got a six-player trade between the Braves and the Dodgers. The youngest player involved is 27, the average age of the players is about 31, and this year they’ve all combined to be worth -1.2 WAR. Sounds to me […]

Are the St. Louis Rams setting up Nick Foles for failure?

A couple of years ago Nick Foles broke the NFL’s record for touchdown to interception ratio for a single season. While a lot of those came in a single game against the Oakland Raiders, one of the big reasons is because he had plenty of weapons to work with. DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper combined for over two thousand receiving yards and 17 touchdowns. Tight ends Brent Celek...

RG3 misses 'having fun playing football' after two tough seasons

Robert Griffin III has suffered through a couple of horrific seasons in Washington after blowing the hinges off the NFL as a rookie in 2012. He is hoping a new mental approach will help him recapture the magic, and part of that process appears to involve taking the game not so seriously. Speaking with reporters after Washington’s first OTA session on Tuesday, Griffin spoke about...
