Now call me strange but I would say awaiting trial for Murder and under investigation for dounle murder is just a little trouble

lmao really

The knew when they drafted the kid he was a punk with a bad past and actually thought throwing money at him was a positive thing.

The Pats do have a good track history with bad apples. but they blew it big time there.

Rumor out here on the east coast has yet another 1 year deal in the making. the pats are going to make that title push next year. but nothing signed yet

Yeah they generally do well as do the Bengals, well they calm some down.

Looks like Wilfork is going so they will have a few more pennies to spend. Its like the cold war all over again. The Saints, Broncos, Pats all tooling up to kill the west coast

LMAO Vince walking? The pats not milking a value contract?

They are going to hold Vince to that $7.5 million contract this year. that my impression. he will leave as a free agent next year. only chance he has is failing his physical. Pats know his value to this defense.

plus he would not be the first player the pats have done this to. he walks unhappy damaged and a few years left in the tank. The pats milked him for all they can and got lucky with the contract dollars yet again in the final year.

they take the Comp pick. now a trade for Vince will have to be solid in the pats favor or it aint happening. typical pats BAU

Vince asked for a released because they are pushing him to take a cut.

Re: John Clayton say saints interested in Brandon Browner

There is only $3.5ml in dead money so with a 11ml+ cap hit they can free up some big money


Vince Wilfork asks New England Patriots to release him

Vince Wilfork's 10-year run in New England as the face of the*Patriots' defense could be coming to an end soon.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport broke the news Thursday that Wilfork has*asked for his release, according to sources informed of the situation. The*Patriots*approached Wilfork about restructuring his contract, and it*was a nonstarter.

Wilfork, who turns 33 in November, is coming off a torn Achilles tendon. He's due $7.5 million in 2014 with a salary-cap charge of $11.6 million. He signed a big five-year contract extension with the team back in 2010.

Wilfork appeared to be playing hurt at the start of the 2013 season, when he struggled. It's not a surprise the*Patriots*wanted to address his contract, and it's not a surprise that Wilfork didn't take that news well. He's been a standout player and a leader on and off the field.

The*Patriots' decision to approach Wilfork about adjusting the contract has beaten down Wilfork, according to Rapoport. One could see Wilfork asking for his release as a way to take control of the process. He's essentially trying to speed up the process so he can hit the open market and sign with a new team.

We do not think this has*any relation to the signing*of*Darrelle Revis. The Wilfork process was already underway before the*Patriots*knew they could get Revis.

In reality, the*Patriots*are just doing business like they always have. They unemotionally set prices on players, even leaders like Wilfork. Based on his injury and age, they don't think he's worth $7.5 million. That's harsh, but he hardly will be the first*Patriots*player to leave town in ugly fashion.

Wilfork wants to continue playing, and he will surely find another job. He'll play for a few more seasons, retire and then one day get inducted into the*Patriots*Hall*of*Fame.

Re: John Clayton say saints interested in Brandon Browner

but they have done this game before and till they have a player in place that can plug the middle i do not see it happening. asking for a pay cut sure but at 7.5 mill he is still a bargain if all test out ok. if he does leave healthy and under a solid contract number the pats nation will shocked and well talk radio here will be a buzz at least till celtics get there ping ball numbers.

do you think 7.5 mill for vince wilfork in the final year of a contract is too much?

this is so far from the truth it amazes me. without vince they learned their defense blows in the middle. they have no players to even plug the holes. now if they had some one in place then sure i can see the truth

Re: John Clayton say saints interested in Brandon Browner

Me, no I like the big man.
Cant stand the Pats but I was cheering him on after that interception he got a couple of years back, really wanted him to return it for a TD.

Thing is tjough 7.5ml is fine but the cap hit is 11.6 mill and if cut they could opens them up to making a big play somewhere.

Would they out a offer in for Graham? .
Its not the way they normally do things but neither is signing Revis.They woild have the cap space snd they cant gauretee Gronks health. Let Brady spend his finsl 2-3 years with a real target every play.

i missed that sorry. but they still would end up with a major whole in the middle that makes all that money spent on CB a waste of time. teams will run on them just like last year. it will be interesting to see what happens. i will have to listen to talk radio here. it will be funny when the hard core boston fans go off with that accent.
