Wilfork: Patriots aren't picking up my option

(AP) -- Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said Thursday he will not be back with New England next season, ending an 11-year stay in which he won two Super Bowls and established himself as the cornerstone of the Patriots' defense.

In a statement on Twitter, Wilfork said the team told him it would not be picking up his option for 2015, making him eligible for free agency.

"I'm in a good place," Wilfork said. "I will take my time think things through take into consideration many things but mainly my family and see where life goes from there. ... But regardless remember I will always remain a New Englander a Patriot forever."
