As mentioned in today's in today's news & notes, things aren't looking good in the Vince Wilfork negotiations.

Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe reported this morning that the two sides haven't made any progress, and it appears that things may be taking a turn for the worst. Wilfork's agent, Kennard McGuire, told him that he's disappointed in the lack of progress, and from what's being said it appears that things may be starting to go downhill.

"Although our dialogue has been ongoing, we just have not achieved the level of comfort for Vince,'' McGuire told the newspaper. "In a profession where production and durability equals reward, I'm terribly disappointed that we have not found common ground in what a player of Vince Wilfork's value truly is.

"Our desire was, and is, a commitment to Vince that equals the one he has made to the organization. Today, we're just not there. For a man who is as passionate to the game as Vince Wilfork is, I truly feel this is unjust.''

Despite the situation Wilfork plans on participating in camp in Foxboro.
