FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork says he's closer to achieving his goal of finishing his career with New England.
The 10-year veteran who missed most of last season with a torn Achilles' tendon has tweeted that he looks forward to returning to football and helping his team have a chance to win a Super Bowl.
Wilfork originally had balked at the Patriots attempt to restructure his contract to lessen the salary cap hit.
He tweeted amid reports that he had agreed to restructure his contract. The Patriots usually do not announce contract restructurings.
