Dream home now possible for Wilfork

Vince Wilfork isn’t rushing out to make a purchase after signing his five-year, $40 million contract.

“I think I have everything I want already,” he said this morning on a conference call, laughing. “The only thing we’re going to do – closer to the time of retirement – I’m going to build a home. That’s it.

“I’m not a big flashy guy. I’ve got my truck. I’m just a normal dude. I don’t need to go out and buy a Ferrari or Bentley or stuff like that. Even though I love to fish, it doesn’t make sense to go out and buy a boat, because I can’t enjoy it. I’m fine for now.”

Wilfork said he hopes to build his “dream home” in Florida. He has land in Lake Wells, which is between Orlando and Tampa Bay.

“I’ve had it for five years now, and I can’t wait to build it out there,” he said. “It will definitely be in the Sunshine State, somewhere with some good weather all the time so I can golf and fish every day.”
