According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, the Patriots have in fact talked with Vince Wilfork about a possible extension, although there are no current discussions taking place.

Wilfork is a great player, but his $11.6 million 2014 cap hit is just ridiculous. I hope the two sides will be able to lower that number, but if not, a release is definitely a possible scenario. Obviously this is not ideal, but the NFL is a business, and sometimes business decisions have to be made.

As for Wilson, I think it is just a matter of time before he is gone. Some acquisitions just don’t work out, and this is one of them.
