FIRST LOOK: Vince Wilfork Fitted For Patriots Hall of Fame Red JacketBob Breidenbach / USA TODAY NETWORK

Former New England Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork has made his return to Foxborough for his induction into the team Hall of Fame.

On Thursday afternoon, Wilfork stopped by The Hall to try on his red jacket for the first time and chat with the media about his special day.

“This is my first time back [in Boston] in ten years. I landed and feel like we never left,” said Wilfork. “You’re walking through the city and you hear people screaming for you. Boston is always home for me. It always will be.”

Wilfork was also asked to discuss his impact as a Patriot, to which he used his answer as an opportunity to credit his teammates for the success.

“We won a lot because as a team we took it seriously… It was always about the team, it was never about me. Nose tackle is the grimiest position there is…one thing I always tell guys is you got to be versatile. You got to be able to move around. That’s how you become one of the greats.”

In 10 seasons with the Patriots, the two-time Super Bowl champion was named to five Pro Bowls and named a member of the Patriots All-2000s and All-2010s teams, the Patriots 50th Anniversary Team, and the Patriots All-Dynasty Team.

Wilfork’s induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame will take place at 4 pm EST this Saturday. It is free and open to the public.
