As you can see, it reads “Help Vince” with the date “7/15/10” and a plug for the team’s Web site underneath that. Inside the “N” is the likeness of a Patriot Super Bowl ring from the franchise’s last title, won in February 2005.
So what does it all mean? We’re not quite sure yet. On Twitter, @MmMmmBlueLabel guessed that it was some sort of charitable endeavor involving Wilfork’s ring.
Not a bad guess.

UPDATE (4:21 p.m.): This hit, and probably has nothing to do with anything. But July 15 would’ve been the deadline for Wilfork, carrying the franchise tag, and the team to reach a long-term deal. That, of course, has been taken care of. So the above guess from a reader remains the best one I’ve seen.
