Vince Wilfork no longer wants to be a New England Patriot.

The former all-pro defensive tackle has reportedly asked for his release.

Wilfork has spent all 10 of his NFL seasons with the Patriots, after being drafted out of Miami in 2004.

The Patriots reportedly asked the 32-year old to take a pay cut from his $7.5 million salary, but Wilfork doesn't want to take the pay cut to stay with New England.

Wilfork and the Patriots discussed a restructured three year contract, that would have lowered his salary cap number for this season.

Wilfork is in the final year of a five year $40 million contract.

If released, Wilfork would likely be the top defensive tackle on on the free market.
