Peppers chatter persists - Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston After doing some thinking. I think the Patriots should tag and trade wilfork(he only plays 50% of the defensive snaps and should not be paid top dollar unless he plays more than 75% of the snaps. We should switch to the 4-3. We dont have the personnel for a 2 gap 3-4). I rather spend the money for Peppers than Wilfork. Lets trade Wilfork for a first and grab Rolando McClain and in the second round we could grab another DT with one of our second rounders.
