Wilfork discusses his absence from OTAs while Warren talks about life without Wilfork. Similarly, Mankins' expiring contract becomes a relevant topic.

After being a no-show for the team's OTAs last week, DL Vince Wilfork was present at the
Patriots Charitable Foundation golf tournament yesterday. The Boston Globe reports that
Wilfork has addressed his contract issues. The former pro-bowl defensive lineman said,
"It's nothing personal towards my coaches or anything like that. It's not the first time a
player has gone through a contract negotiation problem."

Additionally, fellow defensive lineman Ty Warren talks about the possibility of playing without either
Wilfork or Seymour in the years to come
. In the Herald, Warren is quoted as saying, "You just have to take it as it comes. You know it's inevitable. It's going to happen at some point. You just don't know when or who or where."

Staying with the theme of contract negotiations, former first-round pick G Logan Mankins is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Mankins has decided to take a contrasting approach from that of Wilfork's saying to Globe, "You know I signed a contract. I'm here to play, so until I don't have one I'll be there."

Lastly, the Globe investigates possible kick-return replacements after the trading of Ellis Hobbs.
