Ron Borges of the Boston Herald has a simple theory about why Vince Wilfork and the Patriots reconciled.

"My sense with [Patriots owner] Robert Kraft is he's getting a little weary of constant agitations from players he really likes," Borges told Michael Felger on Sports Sunday. "I sense from talking to him at owners meetings, enough of these beefs over a half-million dollars."

Felger asked if Kraft telling reporters definitively that oft-arrested receiver Kenny Britt wouldn't be joining the Patriots, despite Britt making a free-agent visit to Foxboro, was a sign of a disconnect between the owner and coach Bill Belichick.

"Once he heard about Kenny Britt, he let it be knows that wasn't going to happen," Borges said. "I think Belichick's a football guy. He just looks at it from a football point a view. Kraft still has the Aaron Hernandez trial hanging over his head. He looks at it and he's worried about getting sued."
