    Is this Wilforks last Year?

    With the signing of Brace it looks like BB wants to play hardball with Wilfork. I hope not

    Re: Is this Wilforks last Year?

    now i beleive this will be seymours last year,but wilfork will at least be franchised next year if they dont get a deal done this year.there are many pats that will be free agents next year,and many sacrafices will come,but the older guys i beleive will move on.who knows brace could move to the end spot next year.

    Contracts are two ways streets. If Wilfork wants Haynesworth's crazy money, it probably would not happen with the Pats. The addition of Brace may decrease Wilfork's load and extend his career, and we hope Wilfork will take that as a consideration in his asking price. I wonder whether the Pats will pick Wilford over Seymour, if they can only afford to keep one. They will accommodate Wilfork's wish for a good payday, within reason.

    Moss, have you seen Brace?  That guy was born to play NT.  I don't see him playing DE.  Now they could play some 4-3 with Vince and Brace inside.  That would be pretty stout.  Southie is right.  Who knows how much Vince is looking for.  This gives them a backup this yr and a potential replacement if they can't come to terms with Vince.

    Wilfork isn't asking for Haynesworth type money and wants to remain a Pat.  Maybe Brace will play beside Wilfork some in a 4-3 this season and as mosseffect said, replace Seymour next year.

    it also spells franchise tag.how many times have we heard no-way,but it has turned into it.who knows?maybe some how we keep both.again who knows.you can never have enough of good depth on a team.if a serious injury happens its nice to a great back-up.jarvis green is very talented,and probably could have started somewhere,but he sits behind seymour as a back-up.

    i dont know what your reading,but wilfork is one of the best in the league.but it will come down to money,or the franchise,but i beleve a deal will get done.6-2,and 6-3, 324lbs,and 325 lbs.pretty close in size,and weight.but wilfork is much more nastier.

    Wilfork is gone.  Hopefully they resign Seymour or have their eye on a replacement for him in 2010.

    We have no idea what kind of money Wilfork is demanding. All we have are the Globe articles that have nice public negotiating stances coming from both sides. That plays better with fans than hardball from either the player or the team.

    I can't see BB taking someone just for negotiating leverage, but the fact that there was no backup for Wilfork on the roster was scary last year. I hope this is about depth and flexiblity for the future (they could play 4-3 in some instances). If it is about leverage, then better to be in this position than being screwed if Wilfork bolts.

    The economics of second round picks aren't going to play a role in whether NE keeps both Brace and Wilfork. This is about the big picture.

    Not necessarily and it is especially hard to find nose tackle types in the draft..for all you Worcester people out there Brace played at Burncoat High School..but you knew that already

    they were just talking about him on the network,and they said the nice thing about Brace is he can play both DT,and DE.

    This article was before the Draft now they have Brace, hopefully it works out and we see the pats run a little more 4-3 sets
