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...

Vince Wilfork To Star In ESPN's Annual "Body Issue"

Because when you want to sell tasteful nudes, you bring out the biggest gun. When you think of the majesty and beauty of the human body, you naturally think of Houston Texans planetoid nose tackle Vince Wilfork. Thus, it should come as no surprise that this modern day Adonis will be featured in ESPN's yearly "Body Issue," in which various athletes get naked and pose for tasteful pictures. Big Vince had this to say about his upcoming spread: "It's OK to be who you are." -- @wilfork75 #BodyIssue pic.twitter.com/KcpWpvSFen — Texans PR (@TexansPR) June 21, 2016 How 'bout it, Texans...

Former Patriots NT Vince Wilfork to star in next ESPN: The Body Issue

This is the greatest bit of NFL news since the Patriots won the Super Bowl. Dreams really do come true. According to a release from ESPN, former New England Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork will participate in the next Body Issue. “I know I don’t have the six-packs and the eight-packs and all that,” Wilfork said. “But I’m perfectly fin with what I am. If people can look at me, look at a guy that’s 325-plus doing an issue like this, I’m pretty sure that they might have a littl confidence after seeing that it’s ok to be who you are.” For those unaware of the Body Issue and...

New England Patriots roster breakdown: #36b SS Brandon King

He’s been a standout on special teams in 2015. Can he build upon his impressive rookie season? The mandatory phase of the New England Patriots' offseason workouts is over – at least until training camp starts in late July – and we have re-entered the quieter parts of the NFL calendar. However, while the football world seemingly turns slower these days it does not stop. After all, by late August, each team has to start making its roster cuts. Until then, players have to secure their spots on the team; they need to do their jobs (well) or someone else will. Over the course of the next...

ESPN’s Mike Reiss shares an interesting note on Patriots sophomore DE Trey Flowers

Could this be enough to win a roster spot? The New England Patriots spent an early 4th round pick in 2015 on pass rusher Trey Flowers, but left the Ferrari in the garage after Flowers suffered a shoulder injury in the preseason. The 6’2, 265 lbs pass rusher comes with a monstrous wingspan and great natural ability that the team hopes to tap in 2016. ESPN’s Mike Reiss shared some insight on the possible use for Flowers in his Sunday Notes- which also includes information on the Patriots offseason practices, former defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, and long snapper Joe Cardona- and it...

Patriots 2016 free agent situation is extremely similar to 2009 with Vince Wilfork and Richard Seymour

The Patriots have a lot of free agents to consider. Don’t worry- Bill Belichick has done this before. It’s no secret that the New England Patriots have a lot of key players up for new contracts after the 2016 season. If we look at the three-deep of the roster, we see pending free agents all over the place. On offense, RB LeGarrette Blount, WR Matthew Slater, and TE Martellus Bennett will be free agents, as will OTs Marcus Cannon and Sebastian Vollmer. The defense has it far worse. EDs Jabaal Sheard, Rob Ninkovich, and Chris Long will be free agents, as will DTs Alan Branch and...
