Vince Wilfork retires as a New England Patriot

"I'm finally calling it quits from a game that I truly, truly, truly love, a game that I was committed to, a game that I was dedicated to, a game that I gave all to", the former Patriots and Texans defensive tackle said Wednesday after a news conference in New England to confirm his long-rumored retirement.

During his career, Wilfork was on two Super Bowl-winning Patriots squads, made the Pro Bowl five times and posted 559 tackles, 16 sacks, 12 fumble recoveries, three interceptions and five forced fumbles. "That drove me to the best I could because I never wanted to let you down".

Wilfork, who spent his last two seasons with the Houston Texans, got choked up during the commemorative ceremony at Gillette Stadium when he revealed the only regret of his National Football League career: that his parents never had the opportunity to see him play professionally. I believed I was the baddest person that's on the field at all times, and that's how I handled my business. "You made me prove it every time I stepped on the field".

"Physically it hurt every day".

"He was the best defensive linemen I ever coached", said Belichick. He and owner Robert Kraft signed a contract, and Wilfork was re-presented with a No. 75 jersey like the one he got when he was picked 21st overall in the 2004 draft.

When Kraft's wife Myra was sick, Wilfork and his wife Bianca gave him a chain with a picture of Robert and Myra on it. During his time in New England, the Patriots won 136 regular-season games while only losing 40.

"I always wanted to come back and be a Patriot for life. I know it was rough sometimes with the career I had, but I think at the end of the day, it was worth it", Wilfork said. It might be a year or so I'm going to take off and kind of do things I want to do.
