When it comes to Wilfork, we’ve written these obituaries for his Patriots career a few times over the last five years or so, including last offseason where it appeared he was at odds again with the organization. But this time, it just feels like this could really be the end of his time in New England. In a message posted to Twitter Thursday morning, he wrote: “I want to take the time just to let everyone know that I was informed on Tuesday that the [P]atriots will not be picking up my option. I’m in a good place. I have a great relationship with the Patriots organization. Please know how blessed my family and I have been to be able to play 11 years in New England for an amazing organization.”
He added: “I will take my time [and] think things though [and] take into consideration many things, but mainly my family and see where life goes from there … But regardless remember I will always remain a New Englander a Patriot forever.”
