Pats formalize signings of Wilfork, Neal


The Patriots today made official the re-signing of NT Vince Wilfork and G Stephen Neal, deals that went down late last week and helped secure the team’s position in the trenches.

The photo on your right — from the Patriots official Twitter feed — gives you the visual of the deal with Wilfork going into the books today.

For one reason or another, OLB Tully Banta-Cain’s three-year contract wasn’t part of this particular release, but I’m sure that one’s coming, too.

UPDATE (2:50 p.m.): Actually … Just got a head’s up that Banta-Cain’s signing was announced officially last week. So that’s done, too, and the decks are clear, but it seems like the days of free agency sure are starting to run together.
