After 13-years in the NFL, Houston Texans’ nose tackle Vince Wilfork is contemplating retirement.
“I’ve been thinking about it. I’m not saying I will do it, and I’m not saying that I won’t do it. But it’s definitely not off the table.”
In the 2004 NFL Draft, Wilfork was selected 21st overall pick by the New England Patriots where he played 11 years of his career.
During his time as a Patriots, Wilfork won two Super Bowls and was named both the Pro Bowl and the All-Pro team in 2007, 2009-2012.
They said that Coach Bill O’Brien was “caught off-guard” when he was told that Wilfork was contemplating retirement.
“Wow… he hasn’t spoken to me about that,” said O’Brien. “To play nose tackle in this game at such a high level for that many years, to me it’s incredible. (In) those positions there is physical, violent contact every play.”
And Wilfork is active to play against the Oakland Raiders in the wild-card playoff game on Saturday.
