Miami football: Vince Wilfork apparently announces retirement in a ribs commercial

The former Patriots defensive lineman announced his retirement as an NFL player on Twitter yesterday following 13 seasons in the league, 11 of which were with the Pats.

The video ends by noting that "Vince's Farewell Tailgate" will take place September 7 in New England.

This seems like a dude completely happy with retirement, smoking cigars, wearing revealing overalls and eating ribs while wearing a hat that says "RIBS".

Wilfork played for the Patriots for 10 seasons, winning two Super Bowls (after the 2004 season and after the 2014 season).

Though he won't be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame until 2022, it's worth discussing whether Wilfork belongs in the Hall.

Vince Wilfork's retirement announcement was brought to you by Kingsford Charcoal. He started every game he played as a Texan, even while his career and his abilities were slowly winding down. He struggled to get off the field as one Patriots player after another came to wish him well.
