The question of retirement cropped up for the 35-year-old Wilford immediately after his Houston Texans lost 34-16 in the AFC Divisional playoff game on January 14 at the New England Patriots - the organization with which Wilford played his first 11 seasons.
After bookending his Patriots career with Lombardi Trophies, the five-time Pro Bowler spent two seasons with the Houston Texans. He won Super Bowl rings in 2005, and 2015, and had two other trips to the Super Bowl (the Patriots lost twice to the Giants in Wilfork's tenure).
Wilfork was one of the bigger men in the National Football League, and he had no issue throwing his weight around in the defensive line.
Wilfork was a legend in New England, and fans were sad to see him go, so it's nice to see him returning.
A prankster and jokester wherever he played, here is another one of Wilfork's finest moments.
