Vince Wilfork's 11-year career with New England appears to have come to an end. As expected, the Patriots have declined to pick up Wilfork's option—saving them $8 million against the cap—and the longtime anchor of the Pats' D is going to have to move on.

He's in good sprits, though. Wilfork put out this statement on Twitter:

Wilfork is still effective, though obviously not $8 million worth of effective. He'll get offers. And if none of them are particularly enticing? Maybe there's a chance he and the Patriots aren't done quite yet.
