Best Of Social Media: Vince Wilfork Retires From The NFL

On Wednesday, former New England Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork officially called it a career, signing a ceremonial one-day contact with the team making him “a Patriot for life” according to owner Robert Kraft.

Many of Wilfork’s old teammates paid tribute to him with emotional social media postings wishing him well into the next chapter of his life.

The Massachusetts State Police also shared a thank you to Wilfork, in case you may have forgotten his heroics of the field following the 2014 AFC Championship game.
