If you told me about two years ago, that New England Patriots fans would be burning the jersey of wide receiver Wes Welker, I would have called you crazy.

However after Wes signed a two-year deal with the Denver Broncos this week, a couple of angry New England fans decided to celebrate his betrayal of the Patriots by burning his jersey.

Prior to lighting the replica jersey with a lighter, both of them had some pretty harsh words about his Wes career with the Pats and brought up that dropped pass from Super Bowl XLVI:

“R.I.P. Patriots Wes Welker, 2007-2012″

    Losers !!!

    It always gets me how some people forget that there is a business end to this. Welker fulfilled his contract obligations and was free to sign with any team he pleases. Freedom of choice people !!!

    If they were going to burn anything, it shpould be their Patriot t-shirts. It was not Welker’s choice to leave, NE did not want him back, they made that quite obvious. So NE bandwagoners, waste your money and burn your Welker things, your loss, not his and the Patriots love the fact you are burning them, you will now buy something new and line their pockets again, way to show them NE Fan.
