Is this the end of an era? Longtime Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork may be moving on, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Wilfork has only played for the Patriots, starting in 2004, and has since gone to five Pro Bowls. He was named a captain in 2008 and won a title with the team in Super Bowl XXXIX.

The Patriots save $8 million if Wilfork is let go, $3.6 million in dead cap space.

If his wish is granted, New England will likely miss his leadership in the locker room -- along with his excellent (?) web series "At Home with the Wilforks."
