Watch Vince Wilfork dance while grilling on Memorial Day (Video)

vince-wilfork-grill-danceLike many on Memorial Day, Vince Wilfork of the New England Patriots took the opportunity to fire up the grill and prepare the finest of meats.

And if you’re going to do some grilling, why not have some music playing in the background? When a song comes on you like and no one’s watching (so you think) there’s generally an increased chance you’ll bust a few dance moves.

That’s precisely what Vince Wilfork did. However, someone was watching. That someone was his wife Bianca, who recorded her husband and uploaded the video to her Instagram account for us all to see.

Happy Memorial Day from the Wilfork household!

Vince Wilfork reportedly ripped name plate off locker, cleaned out things

Vince WilforkVince Wilfork apparently is pretty ticked off with the New England Patriots.

Two weeks ago it was reported that Wilfork asked the Patriots to release him. Wilfork is due $7.5 million next season and will cost $11.5 million against the salary cap if the team keeps him. If they release him, they save about $8 million, but he would still count about $3.6 million against the cap. The team wants him to re-work his current deal, and that’s left him upset with the situation.

According to The Boston Herald, Wilfork was so angry with the way his first contract talks with the Pats went this offseason that he not only asked for his release, but he also ripped the nameplate off his locker stall and cleaned out his locker.

Wilfork may have just been reacting to the situation at the time, but that doesn’t paint a pretty picture.

Wilfork is 32 and coming off a torn Achilles’ tendon injury, which probably explains why the Pats want him at a discount. The Pats’ run defense ranked 30th in the league last season without him around for most of the year following his injury.

Team owner Bob Kraft said Monday that Wilfork is one of his personal favorite players from the team and that he hopes they can work something out.

Porn girl Jess Brigham offers Vince Wilfork sex to keep him with Patriots

Jess Brigham Patriots

Jess Brigham, a woman who bills herself as a former Victoria’s Secrets model turned slut, is a diehard New England Patriots fan and willing to do just about anything to make sure her football team keeps its best players.

After learning that defensive tackle Vince Wilfork reportedly has asked the team to release him, Brigham submitted her best offer to convince the big man to stay with the team.

I dunno, Vince, an offer like that has to be hard to turn down. And Darrelle Revis might have to respond just to cash in on his gift from the Patriots’ unofficial welcome wagon.

By the way, what’s up with all these adult film girls loving the Patriots? Remember Bibi Jones, the girl who was Rob Gronkowski’s buddy?

And if Wilfork and Brigham ever do get it on, I picture them playing this song in the background:

Report: Vince Wilfork asks Patriots to release him

Vince-Wilfork-NFL-quarterbacks-wimpyThe New England Patriots were expected to face some difficult salary cap decisions after signing Darrelle Revis on Wednesday, and it appears losing veteran nose tackle Vince Wilfork could be a consequence of bringing Revis on board. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Thursday that Wilfork has asked the Patriots to release him.

Wilfork has been considered one of the most valuable defensive players in the NFL in his 10 seasons with the Patriots. He missed 14 games in 2013 (including playoffs) with a torn Achilles and the Patriots’ rush defense went from ninth-best in the league with him in 2012 to 30th-best without him for most of the year in 2013.

Wilfork was due to cost the Patriots $11.5 million against the salary cap in 2014. They would save about $8 million of that by cutting him. The ideal scenario would have been to get the five-time Pro Bowler to agree to restructure his contract, but it seems he is not interested in that.

New England knew Wilfork could wind up being a cap casualty this offseason. I’m sure Bill Belichick was hoping the 325-pounder would stick around for less money once the team signed Revis, but it doesn’t appear he was inspired by the big signing. Defensive line depth will be the next area the Patriots have to address.

Vince Wilfork hairline struggle: bald and looking not a day over 57

Vince Wilfork hair bald

When we see Vince Wilfork, it’s usually when he’s wearing his helmet and dominating the line of scrimmage for the Patriots. But ever since he tore his Achilles’ in September and was placed on IR, he’s been unable to play. That meant we got a glimpse of Wilfork playing the role of cheerleader on New England’s sideline for the team’s playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. And it’s a glimpse Wilfork might want back.

Look at that guy … and ask yourself if you can believe that he is only 32 years old. The hairline struggle is real. Wilfork might want to consider shaving it all off and going completely bald.

Many also noticed a strong resemblance to Mr. Winslow from “Family Matters”:

I say he’s just showing everyone what Kimbo Slice will look like in 15 years.

Vince Wilfork reportedly out for the season with torn Achilles’ tendon

Vince-Wilfork-NFL-quarterbacks-wimpyThe New England Patriots made a statement on Sunday night by defeating the Atlanta Falcons on the road, but it was not all good news for Bill Belichick’s squad after the victory. Vince Wilfork left the game in the first quarter with a foot injury and was unable to return. According to Shalize Manza Young of the Boston Globe, Wilfork tore his right Achilles’ tendon.

An injury of that magnitude would almost certainly end the 31-year-old’s season. Wilfork is a defensive captain for the Patriots and one of the most underrated players in football. He has been the anchor of New England’s defense for years, playing a role that rarely receives any credit but has been incredibly important.

The Patriots have very few options at defensive tackle beyond Wilfork and veteran Tommy Kelly, which has already led to speculation that they could look for help via a trade or free agency. Former Patriots defensive lineman Richard Seymour is still a free agent, though he did not exit New England on the best of terms five years ago.

Without Wilfork, the Patriots will likely have to change their defensive approach. His ability to absorb two or three blocks at a time has made New England one of the most effective teams against the run for several years. Now that their secondary seems to be rounding into form with Aqib Talib looking like a shutdown corner, teams could look to attack the Patriots on the ground early and often.

Ted Johnson called Vince Wilfork’s wife ugly and Wilfork is furious

Vince-Wilfork-Bianca-WilforkFormer New England Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson was teammates with Vince Wilfork in 2004, the year before he retired from football. The two defensive stand-outs won a Super Bowl together that season, but I’m going to go out on a limb and guess they were never really close friends. And if they were, they aren’t anymore.

Johnson now works as a radio host for Sports Radio 610 in Houston. On Friday morning he was on with “In the Loop” when a caller asked him to name the player he played with that had the ugliest spouse during his time with the Patriots. Johnson seemed hesitant, but he went ahead and answered the question anyway. He probably should have left it alone.

“You know what, I’ve got it,” Johnson said. “And this is a big, big man. This guy had his way with the Texans this year. He won’t hear this — Vince Wilfork.”

Teddy may have already learned his first valuable lesson of working in radio — everyone hears everything. They may not be listening live, but sports bloggers like us make sure that anything worth hearing is heard. Such was the case with Johnson’s regrettable comment about Bianca Wilfork, which led to the following message on Twitter from Wilfork to Johnson.
