Wilfork Not Expected to Hold Out of Training Camp

by

Though Vince Wilfork and the Patriots have not gotten any closer to an agreement on a contract extension, the centerpiece of the Pats' 3-4 defense is not expected to hold out from training camp, the Boston Herald reports.

According to the report, a "source in the Wilfork camp" said that he will be in attendance when double sessions begin on Thursday, saying Wilfork will ?be in camp 100 percent committed to his job.?

Wilfork is in the final year of his contract and has expressed a desire to sign an extension before his current deal expires. He skipped the team's voluntary OTAs earlier in the preseason, but attended mandatory minicamp sessions and the team's charity golf event.

?I want to get locked up because I don?t want to go on the free market," Wilfork told the Herald last month. "It?s a possibility if I reach that part I won?t be here, and I don?t want that to happen. That?s why I?m doing everything in my will power to stick around, get something done before the end of this season."
