Vince Wilfork practicing without limitations


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, who's coming back from a ruptured Achilles, looked good during the team's first practice and said he's working without restrictions.

"If I had limitations, I wouldn’t be practicing," Wilfork told the Boston Herald. "My job is to help my teammates the best way I can, whatever that may be. The only way for me to help my teammates is to be on the field and be healthy. Right now, I’m on the field and I’m healthy. If anything happens in the future, I can’t predict that. But right now my job is to help this team the best way I can and get better each day and that’s what I’m going to do."


Vince Wilfork 'moving well'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, who is coming back from last year's ruptured Achilles, was able to take part in full-team workouts Thursday, reports ESPN.

The report says Wilfork "looks to be moving well, as we noticed him pushing off hard and exploding forward to put pressure on the left side of the offensive line." Wilfork didn't participate in the full practice, but it seemed like a significant step.

"Just seeing him back out there is a very, very big asset. It’s great," linebacker Dont'a Hightower said. "Having him in front of you is like a big force field, especially being a linebacker, but for the team as well."


Vince Wilfork able to work


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork participated in half of Thursday’s workout, a good sign as he comes back from a torn Achilles’ suffered last September, reports the Boston Globe. Wilfork is not participating in team drills but is expected to be ready for the season opener.

Dominique Easley a good pick for Pats, bad for Fantasy


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) Dominique Easley was an interesting choice by the Patriots, but Fantasy owners shouldn't be so piqued. For starters, Easley has torn each of his ACLs and is still recovering from one last September. If he's ready to start the season he'll still be behind veterans Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly on the depth chart and might not play much.

But the most important factor to Fantasy owners is the lack of stats that defensive tackles typically get. It would take a banner year from Easley to make an impact in Fantasy. Until things start to look like they're coming together for him, Fantasy owners shouldn't indulge. We'd pass on him in seasonal and long-term formats.

Patriots select Dominique Easley at No. 29


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) With the No. 29 pick in the NFL Draft, the Patriots selected defensive tackle Dominique Easley from Florida.

Easley, who is 6-foot-2, 288 pounds, suffered two ACL tears in college. He came back from a left ACL tear in 2011, then blew out his right ACL last September.

When healthy, Easley has exceptional quickness, constantly playing on the other side of the line of scrimmage. He will provide the Patriots defense and Patriots DST with depth as a rotation player behind Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly.

Vince Wilfork status with Patriots still up in air


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) The status of Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has become quite cloudy. Recent contract talks have failed and speculation is that the team could even cut him if an agreement cannot be reached, according to ESPN.

The 325-pound Wilfork is due to earn $7.5 million in 2014, the final year of his deal. His salary cap charge is $11.6 million. He will also be 33 in November and is coming off a 2013 season that ended after four games due to a torn Achilles.


New deal would help Vince Wilfork, Pats


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork could be in line for a contract extension to help the team with salary cap space, reports ESPN.

Wilfork, 32, is currently entering the final year of his contract with a large cap number at $11.6 million. He also is recovering from an Achilles tear.

The Patriots view Wilfork as a central focus of their defense. A contract extension would not only lock up Wilfork for the future, it could afford the team salary-cap flexibility.

Bill Belichick: 'There's no replacing Vince Wilfork'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2013) Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday the team will take a committee approach to replacing defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, who is lost for the season with an Achilles injury.

"I think everybody is going to have to, we're all going to have to pull that rope," Belichick said, per The Boston Globe. "There's no replacing Vince Wilfork. You just don't replace Vince Wilfork. We'll still have his presence around the team and the locker room, and those type of things, which I think he's great at. On the field, we'll miss him. But whoever is out there, those other 11 guys that are out there, they're all gonna have to -- we're all going to have to pull a little bit harder, including the coaching staff and all that.

"It's a big loss but we're just going to have to find a way to do it. That means everybody doing their job. Obviously somebody is going to have to replace him. Whoever those people are, they're going to have to answer the bell. But collectively as a team, we're all going to have to pull it together. There is no one person that can replace Vince Wilfork."
