Vince Wilfork hasn’t made up his mind about retiring

Last month, Texans General Manager Rick Smith said that his expectation is that defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is retiring after spending the last two seasons in Houston.

That fits with what Wilfork said after the end of the season, but Wilfork isn’t quite ready to make things official. During an interview with Mike Florio for PFT Live that will air in full on Thursday, Wilfork said he hasn’t decided if he will be returning to do battle in the trenches.

Wilfork’s uncertainty about dropping the curtain on playing days is the sort of thing you’d expect from someone who has made football his life’s focus, although it’s usually a pretty good sign that you’re done when you reach the point of saying that you’re probably done.

You can hear everything Wilfork had to say on Thursday morning when PFT Live airs from 6-9 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Radio with the final two hours simulcast on NBCSN.

    I’m a Saints fan, but this guy is my favorite player ever on D. Just an extremely likable dude and great team player. A shame we won’t be seeing more of him in the NFL.

    Whether he plays this season or not, he needs to retire as a Patriot. Awesome guy, on and off the field.

    Hey, if you don’t want him, Houston, then cut him. We’ll take him in Green Bay for a year 😉

    I agree, once you thinking about retiring you’re already retired.

    Not sure how many fans know that Wilfork is a remarkable athlete for a man of his size The man can throw like a QB and catch a football like few other lineman that big can. Great with a basketball in his hands too. I think Belichick but mostly Kraft would love him to retire as a Patriot. those two men were very close and still are.
