Patriots | Wilfork earns franchise tag
Mike Reiss, of ESPNBoston.com, reports the New England Patriots placed a non-exclusive franchise tag on DL Vince Wilfork Monday, Feb. 22. The team still hopes to reach a long-term deal with Wilfork. Other teams can host him as a free agent and potentially sign him to an offer sheet. If the Patriots decide not to match an offer sheet, they would receive two first-round draft picks. If Wilfork signs his franchise tender with the Patriots, it would be a one-year deal at $7 million.
