Vince WIlfork Talks To Media About Involvement In Miami Football Scandal

Vince Wilfork spoke to reporters briefly regarding his alleged involvement in the University of Miami football scandal in which he reportedly received a $50,000 lump sum payment and numerous other improper benefits during his time in Coral Gables, FL.

"It's tough," Wilfork said before heading out to practice at Gillette Stadium on Monday. "I released a statement a couple of days ago and that's where I'm at with it. I have moved forward. I'm done with that situation and I'm just focused on my football career. One thing I don't want to do is be a distraction to this team, to this organization. I won't be that. My teammates stuck behind me 100 percent. My family, the organization. I've moved forward. I'm definitely towards the Detroit Lions now and it feels good to be around a great group of guys, it feels real good." (via WEEI)
