Their autographs featured signature beliefs from each organization.
A day after New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan signed Adam Schefter's training-camp tour bus with the blustery remark "Soon to be champs," New England Patriots receiver had a chance to respond.
Welker's autograph is accompanied by a friendly reminder: "One game at a time."
While the Jets have a penchant for brash talk, Welker underscores the Patriot Way with an unassuming approach.
Thanks to Boston Herald reporter Ian R. Rapoport for tweeting a preview photo of the bus. I'm sure ESPN will have a video clip of Welker's visit that I'll be able to post later on the AFC East blog.
