Vince Wilfork: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Though Wilfork (Achilles') reportedly asked the Patriots for his release recently, owner Robert Kraft indicated that he's "still not giving up hope" that the defensive tackle could remain with the team, NESN.com reports.

Wilfork (Achilles') has reportedly asked the Patriots for his release, the Boston Herald reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

There had been talk that the Patriots were looking to re-work the defensive tackle's deal to free up some cap space, but evidently that's not something that Wilfork is amenable to. Releasing Wilfork would save the Patriots $8 million against their salary cap, but if he is let go by the team, it would leave a major void, not only in the middle of the team's defensive front line, but also in the leadership department.
After suffering a torn Achilles' tendon this past September, ESPN.com suggests that Wilfork should be ready for training camp.

The Patriots have placed Wilfork (Achilles') on injured reserve, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wilfork's big body in the middle of the Pats' front line will be sorely missed by the team, in particular against the run. The Patriots will now count on the likes of Tommy Kelly and rookies Joe Vellano and Chris Jones to help fill the void as best they can.
Wilfork (torn Achilles') is a candidate for season-ending injured reserve, the Boston Globe reports.

According to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe, Wilfork reportedly suffered a torn Achilles during Sunday's win in Atlanta, which almost certainly brings his season to an end.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The injury is a devastating one for the Patriots' defensive front, as the team will now likely search the waiver wire for an able replacement. In the short term, though, veteran Tommy Kelly and Chris Jones will act as the primary run stoppers up the middle. Expect Wilfork's ultimate status to be confirmed in the near future.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Despite still possessing his comically wide build, Wilfork looked more athletic than ever in 2011, posting a career-high 3.5 sacks while pulling down two interceptions and totaling five passes defended. Wilfork is not disruptive enough to be anything more than an IDP backup, but he surpassed 50 tackles in five of his eight NFL seasons including a 66-tackle season in 2008 and is a safe bet to make a push for 60 tackles in 2012 if he stays healthy. Wilfork has and will continue to play a gigantic snap count for New England.

2011

The Patriots' nose tackle is a big body who can stuff the run, but his IDP numbers are marginal. In 2010, he recorded 57 tackles and two sacks.

2010

The veteran nose tackle signed a five-year, $40 million contract extension with the Patriots in March of 2010. The big guy remains a vital cog on the team's defensive front line, especially against the run, but his value in real terms greatly exceeds his fantasy worth, as evidenced by his total of 43 tackles and no sacks (in 13 games) in 2009.

2009

Wilfork helps anchor the Pats' stout defensive front and is one of the league's more dominant nose tackles. That doesn't necessarily translate into great IDP numbers, but he's usually good for the occasion sack and 50+ tackles per year. This is a contract year for him -- with a big payday on the horizon -- so those looking to target players in that situation may well consider Wilfork, but he will always be more valuable in real terms than he is in fantasy terms

2008

Wilfork is a stud nose tackle, but his value to the Patriots far outweighs that of his worth to IDP owners. His 2007 numbers -- 48 tackles, two sacks -- don't come close to underlining his value to the team's elite defensive front.

2007

Though not a viable IDP, Wilfork is good old fashioned nose tackle, who is a load for offensive lineman to handle as he works in sync with Ty Warren and Richard Seymour. Together, the trio form arguably the best defensive front in the league.

2006

Wilfork, who moves well for a big man, started in all sixteen regular season games at nose tackle last year. The big guy recorded 54 tackles, a number he figures to improve on this year as he continues to develop the way the Pats envisioned when they made him their first choice, 21st overall, in the 2004 draft.

2005

Wilfork emerged down the stretch last year in his first season as a nose tackle and allowed the Patriots to let Keith Traylor walk. The 6-2, 325-pounder finished with 57 tackles and two sacks and he figures to improve on those numbers in his second year with the team.

2004

Wilfork, who some call "Baby Sapp," will help fill the huge void created by the departure of massive run-stuffer Ted Washington. As long as he keeps his weight in check, he should develop into a perennial starter.
