With the Texans history of blowing calls like his on health in the past .... I'm scared he'd just be Tony Bosseli / Ed Reed v9.0.

Tony Boselli..... Ed Reed...... Vince Wilfork......

Sounds like the beginning of some kind of Personnel "Ring of Dishonor". Maybe shoehorn Ahman Green in there too.

Well to be fair she's not a pretty woman. I'm sure that she's sweet and has a great personality though.

Civil human beings don't call other peoples wives ugly in a public forum. That was a scumbag move. Are you really siding with Johnson on this?

Default Re: Vince Wilfork wants out of NE

i have absolutely loved wilfork since he came into the league, and he was my second choice in the draft behind trading up for sean taylor. along with mount washington a bit earlier and casey hampton, wilfork's been one of the most dominant nose tackles of this generation. he'd be perfect for what we want to do on defense.

HOWEVER

CND says no, so ... NO. cnd doesnt miss often (if at all), and even i can see where that achilles will become a constant issue.

Default Vince Wilfork Trade Rumors and Texans

Was just listening to 610am Sports Radio and they were on the phone with a Boston reporter with the latest that Vince Wilfork supposedly was asked to take a pay cut and he went to his locker, took his name down, grabbed his gear and said "I Quit".


Now before you move this thread....there was talk between the broadcaster that the Texans would love to have him here. The Boston informer was asked questions of his health, his potential desires to work with Bill O'Brian again, and what salary he might seek with the Texans.


Knowing he might have flown off the handle, and the fact that he could still possibly work out a deal with the Patriots; it was said by the Boston informer that this episode looks final.


Wilfork as a Texan? Any comments?

Coming off an Achilles, it would be late in the year before he is the guy we want him to be. We could probably get him cheap though, but it would be a waste of a roster spot as we wait for him to contribute next year.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft compared Vince Wilfork, who has requested to be released, to some of the franchise's greats in expressing his hope that the standout defensive tackle will remain with the team.
Kraft wants him to stay.

Default Re: Vince Wilfork Trade Rumors and Texans

IIRC, Wilfork is set to make around $8 million this year and requested his release because he was asked to take a pay cut. Not only do I think we cannot afford him, but he's also 32 and coming off a major injury. As much as I'm a fan of what he's done...no thanks. He's on the downside of his career. This is not the time to be shelling out cash for guys like that.

True

And if what C-N-D says is correct Wilfork has a very real possibility of turning into another Ed Reed situation. Pass

Good points, darn good points. Listening to this radio conversation on the way home from work sure made the drive more invigorating though. I'm going to follow this though, as I could see maybe Denver or Oakland going for him if Vince sticks to his words!

Any deal would have to be low or heavily incentivized. No more retirement contracts for us.

How about $1M base with a $250,000 bonus for playing more than ten plays in a game? If injured, he receives backup money. If starting, about $5M/yr. No more $5M because you used to be good.

I think he knows very well he won't get that much on the open market but he is offended they are asking for the cut after he has restructured to aid them in the past.
