Former New England Patriots DT Vince Wilfork announces his National Football League retirement

Former New England Patriots DT Vince Wilfork announces his National Football League retirement”

Wilfork played 13 seasons in the National Football League, 11 with New England, which took him 21st overall out of Miami (Fla.) in 2004, and the final two with Houston. His final game was last January's playoff loss to the Pats in Foxboro.

A prankster and jokester wherever he played, here is another one of Wilfork's finest moments. A mammoth of a man at 6-feet-2 inches and weighing over 325 pounds, Wilfork was deceptively quick for someone his size coming off the line of scrimmage.

"Later", Wilfork says while shaking his booty at the camera.

Wilfork was a legend in New England, and fans were sad to see him go, so it's nice to see him returning.

Wilfork even incorporated his love of barbecuing when it came time to announce his retirement, doing so in a video posted on Twitter that was sponsored by KIngsford Charcoal. This is a guy who has accomplished as much as anyone on the field and who just wants to have fun without the rigors of the NFL. Before that, he did his mauling at the University of Miami, where he won a BCS National Championship in 2001. He had played the first 11 seasons of his career with the Patriots of New England.

It's a hard look to pull off. The Texans didn't get the production out of him that they maybe wanted, but there's no doubt that there's a hole to fill in Houston now.
