Belichick Gives Praise to NT Wilfork

The Boston Herald reports how coach Bill Belichick gave a little fuel to the fire for NT Vince Wilfork:

While personnel head Nick Caserio carefully chose his words Thursday when asked to rate Vince Wilfork with his NFL peers at nose tackle, Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn’t couch his praise. Instead, he may have inadvertantly provided some ammunition for Wilfork and his agent in their contract negotiation. If Wilfork wants to be paid like the best, Belichick pretty much called him that yesterday, saying the nose tackle was: “As good a player at his position as there is in the league.”
