Even though the San Francisco 49ers ended the Green Bay Packers’ run this season, there are still a lot of things to be thankful for. One of these includes Kristian Welch and his opportunity to play for the home team.
Before getting that chance, though, Welch spent three seasons playing for the Baltimore Ravens. Unfortunately, the linebacker was cut by the time training camp ended.
While it seems like a tragedy at first, this incident opened up the opportunity for Welch to finally play for the Green Bay Packers. And even though his first season with the team ended in a heartbreaking loss, the chance to play so close to home and with a rising star in Jordan Love is reason enough to celebrate for the linebacker.
This coming offseason, Welch is set to take on free agency while training for the upcoming season. It is still unknown whether he’ll return to the Packers or another team will sign him in the coming months.
Kristian Welch Shares Honest Take on Playing For Green Bay Packers
Thanks to his first season in Green Bay, Welch got to play in the NFL in a way he never had before. He shares what it feels like playing close to home in an article posted on the Packers official website.
“That was probably one of the most wholesome parts of being so close is being able to have family and friends come to every game. I had at least 10 family and friends come to every home game. Having their support, being able to talk to them after the game at the house and everything, that part was really fun and really special for me,” Welch said.
With the Packers’ surprising run this season, it only makes sense for Welch to have a memorable time with the team during the past few months.
“This year was a dream come true, to be honest. I grew up here. I obviously was a fan. It was just exciting. I had a lot of fun,” Welch added.
Where he will land next season remains to be seen. What’s certain, though, is that there’s no replacing the time Welch spent playing for Green Bay during the past few months.
