Earlier today it was reported by Adam Schefter that Vince Wilfork had restructured his deal, so he could remain with the Patriots.

Schefter later reported that Wilfork could have made more on the open market, but decided to stay with the Pats despite the pay cut.

Wilfork is a terrific football player, but he might be an even better person. You won’t find a lot of professional football players that would do something like this, especially a player as talented as Wilfork. I am sure Pats fans across the country are ecstatic that the big man will be in Foxboro for the 2014 season.
