Vince Wilfork agrees to a contract extension with New England


After all the drama and reports, the Patriots big man on the defensive line will remain a Patriot after signing a 3 year $22.5 million extension with the Patriots.

ESPN’s Adam Schefer broke the news today, but did not give any details about how much this extension will save New England against the cap this year.

Wilfork can earn up to $8 million this year, according to the Boston Herald’s Karen Guregian. His deal includes $3 million guaranteed and an option for the 2015 and 2016 seasons, according to NESN.

Wilfork, at first, was angry when the Pats approached him about a pay cut, but changed his mind and gave Kraft what he was hoping for: a new deal and another season in New England.

Wilfork tore his Achilles in week 4 last season and missed the remainder of the 2013 season. He was coming into the final year of his 5 year contract he signed in 2010.

Wilfork sent out a tweet before the news broke that he signed to a contract extension with New England.
