Ranking Recently Retired Vince Wilfork’s Top 5 Moments with the Patriots


Vince Wilfork has hung up his jersey after 13 seasons yesterday.

A special combination of size, speed and athleticism, Wilfork was a metaphorical brick wall. He drew double teams and sometimes triple teams just to slow him down.

He announced he was hanging up his cleats with this tweet:

It’s time to take a walk down memory lane and look at the top five moments of Wilfork’s 11-year career with the Patriots.

5. Vince lays the boom

4. GET UP!

He single handedly pushed Jets lineman Brandon Moore into quaterbacl Mark Sanchez causing the unforgettable butt fumble which led to a TD by Logan Ryan and a 49-19 routing
