It appears there is good news on the Vince Wilfork front.
According to the Boston Herald the Patriots defensive lineman’s contract talks are going well enough to the point that he believes he’ll be a Patriot for years to come.
â€śI believe itâ€™ll work out. Iâ€™m just going to let it run its course and play out,â€ť Wilfork told the Herald. â€śI know they have the draft coming up. They have stuff to take care of. As long as weâ€™re on the same page, I donâ€™t care that we canâ€™t do anything right now. I understand that. Weâ€™ve been in contact the last month or two. Iâ€™m very happy with where weâ€™re at. Theyâ€™re happy with where weâ€™re at. Hopefully weâ€™ll get something done, whenever that may be. Iâ€™m in no rush. Iâ€™m going to give them time to handle whatever they need to handle. When the time is right, thatâ€™s when itâ€™s going to happen.
â€śIâ€™m just looking forward to another great season. They know how I feel about it. They know I want to be a Patriot. I want to start my career as a Patriot, and finish as one. Iâ€™ve said it from Day One. I meant that sincerely. So I think itâ€™ll work out. I think everything will work for the best.â€ť
Signing Wilfork is definitely an important part of keeping the core of New England’s defensive line intact. With all the talk over the past few months of Julius Peppers and Jason Taylor possibly coming to Foxboro, one of the key priorities before that happens has obviously been to make sure that Wilfork remains a part of this football team. Now that it seems to be more ofÂ a reality, Wilfork told the newspaper that he’d love to see something transpire on that front.
â€śIâ€™ll take (Peppers) or Taylor. Those two guys are unbelievable,â€ť Wilfork said. â€śIâ€™m willing to play with any of those guys. Letâ€™s do it.â€ť
