Vince Wilfork Refuses To Comment On Nevin Shapiro Allegations

Of all the Miami Hurricane athletes named in Nevin Shapiro's scathing admissions about NCAA violations that happened while he was a booster for the program, Vince Wilfork's name stands out.

The former Hurricane and current New England Patriots defensive tackle is said to have received a $50,000 lump sum payment meant to secure Wilfork’s commitment to Shapiro’s sports agency, various other cash gifts, paid trips to nightclubs, meals, fishing trips, a washer and dryer as well as $1,250 in "bounty payments" on the field.

Wilfork took to Twitter Wednesday night to make his first major comments on the matter and, as expected, his comment is that he has none.

And yes, @Mrs75 is Bianca Wilfork, his wife.

Sooner or later, be it the NCAA or some kind of legal entity, Wilfork will likely have to answer to the validity of the many, many claims. Until then, he's taking the smart (albeit much less exciting) road.
