Vince Wilfork officially retires, takes up grilling career

Vince Wilfork officially retires, takes up grilling career

Wilfork, the five-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl champ with New England, dramatically hangs up his cleats so he can pick up some barbecue tongs and get cookin'. The colossal nose tackle also helped the Patriots win two Super Bowls during that time.

Vince Wilfork ends his career with 16 sacks, 370 tackles and three interceptions.

Fans on Twitter were quick to thank Wilfork for his efforts on the field, and wish him luck in retirement.

Wilfork's ability to clog the middle on the defensive line was invaluable for the Patriots, a team whose defensive scheme is built around athletic, hybrid linebackers flying all over the place.

"No more cleats, I'm moving on to smoked meats", the Super Bowl victor says with enthusiasm.

A prankster and jokester wherever he played, here is another one of Wilfork's finest moments.

The video ends by noting that "Vince's Farewell Tailgate" will take place September 7 in New England. Peace out! I'm out of here. That's the same night the defending-champion Patriots open the National Football League season against the Kansas City Chiefs. "I'll be back, but not on that field", Wilfork said.

The loveable veteran, who spent the last two seasons with the Houston Texans, tweeted a hilarious video featuring him rockin' his overalls, smokin' a cigar and grillin' some meat.
