Pats Looking to Extend the Deal of NT Wilfolk

Wilfolk

From: Pro Football Weekly

It’s only a matter of time before the Patriots begin negotiating a new contract with NT Vince Wilfork. Wilfork’s rookie deal extends through 2009, but the coaches’ belief that he’s the most important cog in their defensive scheme is reason enough for them to be particularly proactive in locking him up. The uneasy future of the CBA is one of many factors slowing down the process but the Patriots are intent on signing Wilfork long-term.

    Defensively, the torch has passed from DE Richard Seymour to DT Vince Wilfork as the leader on the New England Patriots d-line. Arguably, Wilfork is the 2nd most valuable Patriot after QB Tom Brady on the team. Therefore, he deserves to get a contract extension equal to or greater than the one the team gave to DE Ty Warren a couple of years ago even if the team has to give him contract dollars allocated in the future to Seymour.

    This is a no brainer! Vince is the most important piece of the defense. A defense that has steadily slipped since the Pats won the SB. They have infused some youth and speed this year and need Wilfork to man the middle to allow the Jarod Mayo’s to use his strengths and make plays..
