Super Bowl champ Vince Wilfork announces his retirement - is he Hall worthy?

Vince Wilfork

He has accumulated 559 combined tackles, two Super Bowl championships and five Pro Bowl selections.

But, Wilfork being Wilfork, he had to deliver the news in a most-unique fashion: by sporting his famous dungaree overalls and smoking some meat.

"I'm moving on to smoke meats, fellas".

With a simple tweet former New England Patriots star Vince Wilfork announced his retirement from the NFL.

He spent 11 years with the Patriots, where he won two Super Bowls and was named to five Pro Bowls.

We understand that people have questions about public health and we are trying to answer them", she added , according to AFP. Shortly afterwards, it was announced that tainted eggs had also possibly made it into Germany, n-tv reported.

His retirement video says Wilfork will host a tailgate at Gillette Stadium before the Pats season opener on September 7. In our opinion, he does.

"No more cleats", Wilfork says in the one-minute clip.

Of course, the complicated aspect of Wilfork's legacy is the effect he had on opposing offenses - something that can not fit neatly into a box score. When Wilfork left New England prior to the 2015 season to join the Texans, he was brought in to stabilize a talented defensive line anchored by J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney.

Wilfork was fully healthy for 12 seasons; his teams finished top 10 in rushing defense in seven of those years.

Following the team's 2015 Super Bowl victory, Wilfork signed with the Houston Texans, for whom he played during the last two National Football League seasons.
