Vince Wilfork is retiring from the NFL, and he made the announcement in a method befitting the 300-plus-pound nose tackle, ESPN reports.
Wilfork declared the end of his career in a tweet that also served as an advertisement for Kingsford Charcoal, saying he would hold a “farewell tailgate” before the New England Patriots open the regular season against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 7 at Gillette Stadium.
Wilfork, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, played the past two seasons for the Houston Texans after playing his first 11 seasons with the Patriots.
