Vince Wilfork concedes Jamie Collins is ‘pound-for-pound’ best athlete on Patriots

FOXBORO — Vince Wilfork has seen a lot over his 11 seasons with the Patriots.

Cleaning out the Patriots notebook

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Cleaning out the New England Patriots notebook from Friday's media-access period in the locker room: Three draw biggest crowds. Running back LeGarrette Blount, defensive end Chandler Jones and defensive tackle Vince Wilfork drew the largest media crowds.

Patriots' defensive snaps: Quiet dozen for DT Dominique Easley in return

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Snaps played by New England Patriots defenders in their loss to the Packers (including penalties but not kneel-downs): DEFENSIVE TACKLE Vince Wilfork -- 59 of 71 Chris Jones -- 55 of 71 Alan Branch -- 21 of 71 Dominique Easley -- 12 of 71 Quick-hit thoughts: After missing the Nov. 23 win against the Lions because of his knee, Easley returned and was used mostly as an interior rusher in obvious passing situations. Though the Patriots were focusing on a more disciplined pass-rush, Easley didn't seem to create much push in his limited opportunities.
