Wilfork: Don't want to be distraction

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork addressed reporters as a group for the first time since a Yahoo! Sports report that he received benefits while attending college at Miami.

Wilfork entered the locker room with about four minutes remaining in the allotted time for reporters to be present. He was asked about the last week.

"It's tough," he said. "But you know what? I released a statement a couple days ago, and that's where I'm at with it. I'm going to move forward. I'm done with that situation. 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'll move 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."
