"it's time for me to move forward, with the Patriots or not with the Patriots." One option that Wilfork is not interested in is being hit with the franchise tag. "It's basically a slap in my face and an insult to me to tell me I'm an OK player," Wilfork said. "It is what it is. If it happens, there's nothing I can do." "You don't have that security that you want, a long term deal where you're stationary, your family is stationary for another three, four, five years, you don't get the signing bonus you played all your career for." If a deal is to get done, Wilfork said he doesn't care who orchestrates it as long as it happens. "I want a long term deal or I want to be free -- point blank," Wilfork said. "That's how I"m looking at it and that's how my family is looking at it."
