ESPN Body Issue: Former Patriots DT Vince Wilfork issues challenge to Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen

The future Patriots HOF nose tackle jokes with his former quarterback. The ESPN Body Issue comes out tomorrow and I’m excited purely because former New England Patriots nose tackle and eventual team Hall of Famer Vince Wilfork is featured. He’s a big man. Wilfork is listed at 325, but we all know that’s not true. He’s probably closer to 350, if I had to guess, but that’s not fat. He’s just a giant mountain of muscle and fun. Wilfork just sent out a video on Twitter where he drops his cover and shows his upper torso. Tommy Boi where u at? Now that I've done @ESPN Mag #BodyIssue...

Do the Patriots really have the 2nd oldest offense in the NFL?

The latest rankings suggest they do- but is this fair? Philly Voice’s Jimmy Kempski compiled the average age of offensive skill positions around the league and the New England Patriots rank 31st, thanks in part to quarterback Tom Brady who has a birthday in July and is expected to turn 73 years old. Kempski chose the quarterback, the running back, the tight end, and the top three wide receivers on each team to determine the average offensive age. I have a few hairs to split. First, I think that a snap-weighted offense is a better method of determining positional ages because offenses will...
