As it was reported, as long as the contract dispute has not been settled, NT Vince Wilfork may plan to skip more Patriots OTAs.
Wilfork told reporters that he wants to be a Patiot, but the business problem also needs to be solved. He is looking forward to the season, but he will continue doing what he thinks important to him.
“OTAs were voluntary. It wasn’t mandatory. I chose to sit out because of the situation I’m in,” Wilfork said on The Dale & Holly Show. “It’s nothing personal towards the organization, it’s nothing personal towards my coaches or anything like that. It’s just what makes sense to me at this time. I’m looking forward to moving forward. With that being said, I’m looking forward with the season."
“I want to be a Patriot. That’s not the question here,” Wilfork said. “I want to be a Patriot. But at the same time, there’s a business aspect to it. Hopefully we can meet somewhere in the middle and this thing will get over with.”
From June 9 to June 12, there will be more team practices, and Wilfork told media that he would consider skipping the practices too if the dispute has not been solved. Wilfork did not tell out how much he wants in the new contract.
