Hello, and welcome to another edition of ‘The Patriot Way’, your number one source to Pats news and analysis from around the web.

Robert Kraft hopes Vince Wilfork will stay in New England.

However Karan Guregian of the Boston Herald says Wilfork has already cleaned out his locker.

ESPN Boston’s Field Yates gives us a list of performance-based payouts for the Pats in 2013. This is an interesting list. Defensive tackles Chris Jones and Joe Vellano received the most, with Alfonzo Dennard and Kenbrell Thompkins behind them.

The turf in Gillette will be getting an upgrade, according to Mike Reiss. You know it’s the offseason when we are talking about a turf upgrade.

Finally, Nick Underhill give us a terrific piece on the impact of big plays the New England defense made in 2013. As Underhill notes at the end, a lot of pressure will be on the Pats front seven in 2014, because of the huge upgrade the defensive backfield got via free agency. It will be fun to see how they respond.
