The Patriots came to terms with the defensive tackle to a new three-year deal worth $22.5 million. While only $3 million of Wilfork’s new deal is guaranteed, the soon to be 33-year-old can make up to $8 million in 2014.

Wilfork was limited to just four games last season suffering a torn Achilles’ tendon. He has been with the Patriots since 2004 but is far from guaranteed to finish out this new deal.
It’s a happy ending for the two sides after Wilfork reportedly cleaned out his locker and ripped his name tag off earlier this week.
