Wes Welker, known for his impressive stats with Tom Brady, was notably absent from Brady's recent roast. 

Welker, who caught 567 passes for 6,345 yards and 34 touchdowns with Brady, chose not to attend, wary of becoming the butt of jokes.

Several of Brady's teammates, including Randy Moss, Rob Gronkowski, and Julian Edelman, participated.

Welker, who ranks fourth in touchdown receptions from Brady, explained he wasn't keen on the event's tone and didn't want past mistakes highlighted.

"I wasn't asked to present, just to be roasted. I'm glad I wasn't there," Welker said, adding he was "disappointed" with the roast's nature.

Brady, too, had reservations, especially concerning his children and vowed never to do another roast.

Welker, who now coaches for the Miami Dolphins, played for the Patriots from 2007 to 2012, never clinching a Super Bowl. His career also included stints with the Chargers, Dolphins, Broncos, and Rams.
