Now in his 10th year in the NFL, Vince Wilfork has seen it all. That’s why he’s not focusing on the shocking cuts of two of his defensive line mates, Brandon Deaderick and Kyle Love. Love had some parting shots for the Patriots after he was suddenly released last week. But Wilfork has seen plenty of teammates come and go. “It’s always tough,” Wilfork said. “I’m dead set and focused on what I can do to get better as a teammates and a person. That’s where I’m at right now. I can’t focus on who has came and who has gone. It’s 10 years. Everyone has made a lot of changes on their rosters.” Love was released after being diagnosed with type-2 diabetes. He and Deaderick quickly signed on with the Jacksonville Jaguars. “It’s a business. You have to come to work. And that’s what I do,” Wilfork said. “I come to work every day with my hardhat and work my tail off. I won’t stop doing it. I’m going to continue doing that until I’m finished.” Wilfork was out at practice on Tuesday with new line mates Armond Armstead and Tommy Kelly. He hasn’t learned all his new teammate’s names yet, though. “I think I got them down pat just a little bit. Not all of them,” Wilfork said. “That’s why you have these days, to get in and get acquainted with one another and prepare as a team.” Wilfork earned his fifth Pro Bowl nod in 2012. He had been named a second-team All Pro four times, but 2012 marked the first time he was named a first-team All Pro.
