With a simple tweet former New England Patriots star Vince Wilfork announced his retirement from the NFL.

Wilfork is sure to garner Hall of Fame consideration, as he was a game-changer in the middle of the defensive line.

Listed (generously) at 325 pounds, Wilfork was incredibly nimble and athletic for a man his size, which surprised many. The colossal nose tackle also helped the Patriots win two Super Bowls during that time.

Vince Wilfork announced his National Football League retirement Monday afternoon as only he could - while dancing and grilling. He spent his final two years with the Texans.

'Despacito' is the third to hold YouTube's most-popular spot this year
Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's hit summer anthem Despacito has become the most viewed YouTube video of all time . The Spanish track has been so popular that even Justin Bieber jumped on it for a remix.

Wilfork will formally announce his retirement with a press conference Wednesday at Gillette Stadium.

Comment below and tell us what you think about Wilfork retiring and whether or not Reader and Watkins can fill his shoes going forward.

"No more cleats. I'm moving on to smoked meats", he says in the video, which was sponsored by Kingsford Charcoal. He started every game he played as a Texan, even while his career and his abilities were slowly winding down.

Over his 11 seasons here, Wilfork had 355 tackles, 5 forced fumbles, 12 fumble recoveries, 16 sacks, and 3 memorable interceptions. He struggled to get off the field as one Patriots player after another came to wish him well.
