Vince Wilfork Signs with the New England Patriots

With all of the excitement yesterday of the potential of Julius Peppers or Anquan Boldin being signed with the New England Patriots their number 1 priority did sign. Vince Wilfork according to Adam Schefter signed a 5 year 40 milion dollar deal. The Pats also re-signed Tully Banta Cain and Stephen Neal.

The Pats needed to sign their own players first in my opinion. To me this is a good start in the right direction. They still need to sign Leigh Bodden and Kevin Faulk.

As I have stated prior Julius Peppers whether the Pats were really in it did not make sense to me. Vince Wilfork makes sense to me. Anquan Boldin would have been a good trade but Baltimore made the deal instead. I still think they can go after someone like Derrick Mason to help at wide receiver.

Yesterday was the first day of free agency. There is still a long way to go in the off season. I know it is tough for Pats fans but we need to be patient. We need to see how there roster shapes up before passing judgement for next season. I think judgement can be made after the draft.


  1. I think the Ravens got a steal with the trade for Boldin. He is one the top receivers in the league, and defenses wont be able to focus solely on stopping the run game anymore.

  2. I agree with you on Boldin being a steal for the Ravens. For the Pats it sounds like they were looking to get him for 1 year.

    He will certainly open up the Ravesn offensively.
