Patriots Become First NFL Team To Own Their Own Planes

11 Agosto 2017

As one of the bigger defensive tackles in the league, Wilfork was a fan favorite. It is rare to find a player that won the national title in college as well as won the Super Bowl in the NFL.

For what seems like the millionth season in a row, the New England Patriots are who opposing teams will have circled on their schedule.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the Patriots not only bought one, but two Boeing 767 airplanes complete with the team's red, white and blue logo.

It also sounds expensive. The planes cost between $5 million and $65 million.

"The good news is he's coming back here and asked to be a Patriot for life", Kraft said, before signing a ceremonial deal and holding up a Wilfork's No. 75 jersey.

What do you think of the Patriots new team plane?

Wilfork, who played his last two seasons with the Houston Texans, said that physically, he probably could have returned for a few more years. The team plans to use the plane as its main jet to travel on the road.

Fueling up their own plane - and having a second plane as a backup - is hardly a cheap alternative, but over the long haul it might be the smartest decision from a fiscal perspective. There were leather jackets, sort of a fixed price and Vince was getting fitted for this leather jacket and I don't think the gentleman who was the artist had ever seen anyone that size. And the best part, the five Lombardi Trophies on the tail. The Patriots are worth about $3.4 billion, according to the website. As airlines have recovered from the financial challenges of the past decade, the cost to charter an aircraft has risen dramatically.
