I'd be totally up for a 3-4 if we didn't have Ansah, I don't think he could slide into an end spot, and he really isn't a 3-4 linebacker.

It sounds like he will probably resign with New England anyway.

Vince Wilfork is a great player. He would be just fine as a 1-tech in a 4-3. The alignment matter less than the scheme. Wilfork is an amazing two-gapper and some defenses two-gap out of a 4-3. But he could be a great one-gap nose, too. He's just a great football player.

By all accounts?  Reading his statement sure sounds like he is.  "take into consideration many things but mainly my family and see where life goes from there"

That doesn't sounds like a guy who is going to take a paycut to stay in NE.  Sounds like he may be want to return home.

Seems like this is just cap negotiation.  NE has basically designed their entire defense around him taking on a double-team at the point of attack.  Unless they feel that he is slipping, but I didn't see it.

That's a lot to pay for a player coming down from a great career. He may resign with NE for like $4-5 a year. But if I'm him I bounce on NE as this is the 2nd time they have done this to him.
