Vince Wilfork announces retirement in tweet sponsored by grilling company

Vince Wilfork announces retirement in tweet sponsored by grilling company

Vince Wilfork, who spent 11 years playing for the New England Patriots, is hanging up his cleats.

Wilfork is sure to garner Hall of Fame consideration, as he was a game-changer in the middle of the defensive line.

Wilfork, shirtless and adorned in denim overalls sporting his number 75, can be seen dancing and pulling ribs from a Kingsford smoker.

Wilfork started as a first-round pick in 2004, emerging as a young contributor to the 2004 Super Bowl champs.

So it should not come as a surprise that Vince Wilfork, one of the greatest nose tackles - and personalities - in National Football League history, went out with a bang on Monday.

Vince Wilfork is going from the blitz to the barbecue.

It also says there will be a Vince Wilfork farewell tailgate at a New England Patriots game on September 7 in Foxboro, Mass.

But Wilfork was able to handle two and sometimes three offensive linemen at a time, freeing up teammates to get the glory of a sack or run stuff.

"No more cleats, I'm moving on to smoked meats, fella", Wilfork proclaimed in his own unique style. His final game was last January's playoff loss to the Pats in Foxboro. In each of his two years in Houston, the Texans' defense was ranked in the top 10.
