TAMPA -- Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork enters the final year of his contract in 2009. If an agreement can't be reached between Wilfork and the Patriots -- and Wilfork winds up elsewhere -- there is at least one player who won't be disappointed: Jets center Nick Mangold.
Mangold is making the rounds in Radio Row today at Super Bowl XLIII, and he shared his insight on what makes Wilfork (6-2, 325) such a tough matchup.
"He's the type of player you never want to see, and the fact I have to play him two times a year is miserable," Mangold said. "The thing about it is that for his size, he has the uncanny ability to move. You get a lot of guys who are big, and just stand there and take a pounding and don't move. But the fact he can move and be shifty -- which you don't use too often when describing Vince, but I'm going to put it out there -- is fantastic. He's a heck of a player."
