Vince Wilfork Announces Retirement With Hilarious Video

VinceWilfork-Cropped New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork

Wilfork was drafted by the Patriots in 2004 and became a staple of the team's defensive line for over a decade.

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

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

But again, the legend of Big Vince Wilfork isn't confined exclusively to the field.

Wilfork, 35, tweeted the video at noon Monday in coordination with his sponsorship with Kingsford.

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

"Well y'all - it's been a great run, but the time has come", Wilford wrote on his personal Twitter account.

He spent the previous two seasons with the Texans, notching a total of 43 tackles and no sacks during his time in Houston. As a younger player, Wilfork and ends Richard Seymour and Ty Warren formed one of the best lines in the National Football League; as an older player, Wilfork became the heart of a rebuilding Patriots defense, a mentor to many as he still played at a high level.

"Peace out! I'm outta here!" he exclaims in the ad, which also shows him clicking his heals as he heads off into the sunset.

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