After expressing frustration and desire to leave New England, Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has decided to restructure his contract to stay with the NFL franchise he has played all of his 10 years with.

Wilfork made the announcement on his Twitter Thursday:


Per ESPN, Wilfork's new deal has him making $8 million with $3 million guaranteed for the upcoming 2014 season. Wilfork also has the option of playing two more years with the Pats, where he would earn a grand total of $22.5 million.

Wilfork was scheduled to make $7.5 million this year, which counts nearly $12 million against the cap for New England.

The 32-year-old was unable to contribute much to a depleted Patriots team last season, being declared out for the year after an Achilles injury in the fourth game of the season.

The 32-year-old has been with the Patriots since the start of his career, being selected in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft.
