FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots signed veteran defensive tackle Terrance Knighton to a one-year contract and credit longtime franchise stalwart Vince Wilfork for an assist in the process.
“I had a long talk with Vince Wilfork obviously before signing, and he was telling me that it’s a grind but at the end of the day it’s football. It’s a good environment to be around, it’s a good building to be in, and he had nothing but good things to say about the organization,” Knighton relayed in his introductory conference call.
So much for that “only Tom Brady likes Bill Belichick” talk from DeAngelo Williams, huh?
How about the big man Vince Wilfork still trying to help the Patriots for old times sake. One of the classiest guys that played the game here in New England and a guy that we all miss tremendously. There is a reason so many former Patriots remain loyal to the organization. Bruschi, Harrison, Evans, Moss, Branch, Brown, McGinest; they are all in the media now but you can tell they remain loyal to BB and the Pats organization. Remember that rant Harrison went off on to Tony Dungy last year on national TV? Or when Bruschi tore ESPN a new one on Sportscenter over deflategate? No other team is like this. It makes me proud to be a fan and to cover this team, and all it does is show how stupid and ignorant the haters are.
