On Tuesday at 4 p.m. the NFL free agency period started and many in New England were watching to see if wide receiver Wes Welker would ink a deal with the Patriots or another team. No deal got done, but Toucher & Rich wanted to find out what fans would think if Welker did leave town.
The guys had Adolfo hit up a sports bar to find Patriots fans and ask them what they thought about Welker and whether they thought the Pats needed the receiver. In the middle of the conversation Adolfo pretends to get a tweet saying that Welker had signed with the New York Jets for four years and $12 million.
How quickly the views of Welker changed after the fake news might make your head spin.
