Talks Going Nowhere Between Pats and NT Wilfork

The Boston Herald reports that NT Vince Wilfork isn’t buying into the spin that the Pats are putting on the table about a new deal, or the lack of one:

There has been no progress on a contract extension for Vince Wilfork, and whatever the Patriots have put on the table thus far hasn’t been nearly enticing enough for the nose tackle to even consider signing on the dotted line. This gloomy portrayal came courtesy of Wilfork himself yesterday. Now for the kicker: Wilfork said he doesn’t buy recent remarks made by club owner Robert Kraft about being cautious when it comes to striking long-term deals because of the uncertainty in the league’s labor situation. Does he believe the Pats really are married to that logic?

“Not at all,” Wilfork said. “Because there are 31 other teams out there and there’s a lot of them making moves. They’re in the same situation that we’re in. I understand what he’s saying, but at the same token, it’s not stopping the other teams from making their moves and (doing) what they have to do. “Trust me, I understand where they are coming from. We have a lot of guys on this team that are going to (have contracts expire after the season) that are pretty good players. I know that is pretty tough for them (management). At the same time, the labor situation is all over the NFL.”
