FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots defensive captain Vince Wilfork spoke to the media Tuesday after practice, remarking on the team's second day of organized team activities.
Wilfork noted that this was the time of the year for the Patriots to get to know each other and, more pointedly, to get in shape.
"That's why you have these days," Wilfork said. "Get in, get acquainted with one other. Prepare as a team. I think that's the most important thing, to prepare as a team. And individually, do what you can do to help this team. That's where I'm at.
"Like I said, I'm very excited. Every year it seems like the more and more you play, the more excited you get to come back."
Wilfork was asked about his own condition.
"Hey, I'm in decent shape," Wilfork said, to laughs. "In decent enough shape. But that's why you have these practices, you have OTAs, you have offseason workouts, you have training camps, just to get in shape and get a chance to get acquainted with one another and that's where we at."
