Defensive lineman Vince Wilfork announced his retirement from the NFL Monday.

New England drafted him the first round of the 2004 National Football League draft and he was part of two Super Bowl-winning Patriots squads.

Wilfork started as a first-round pick in 2004, emerging as a young contributor to the 2004 Super Bowl champs. He spent 11 seasons in New England before closing out his career with two seasons as a member of the Houston Texans.




A lover of barbecued and grilled meat, Wilfork revealed his retirement in an ad for a company that specialises in cooking meats. In the four games with Wilfork, New England allowed 105 rushing yards per game; in the 12 games without him, it gave up 178.8. Before that, he did his mauling at the University of Miami, where he won a BCS National Championship in 2001.

He posted a promotional video for Kingsford Charcoal where he hung up his cleats and grabbed his grilling tongs. 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. Wilfork's association with the overalls and no-shirt look dates back to the 2015 season Hard Knocks and the series fourth episode. But there's Big Vince, walking around the Houston practice facility like he owns the place.
