Vince Wilfork retires prepares to become grill master

He was a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl champion before playing for the Houston Texans for the last two seasons of his career. The nose tackle won the Super Bowl twice with the Patriots, and was selected for the Pro Bowl five times, according to the NFL.

The humorous finish was Wilfork through and through, but the clearly sponsored tweet undersells his impact on the field.

Vince Wilfork is ready to hang up his cleats. In the four games with Wilfork, New England allowed 105 rushing yards per game; in the 12 games without him, it gave up 178.8. Instead, Wilford tweeted the news with a video that serves as both a retirement notice and an ad for charcoal company Kingsford.

Syria conflict: Thousands prepare for prisoner exchange deal
In exchange, eight Hezbollah fighters held by al-Qaida's Syria affiliate, Fatah al-Sham Front, will be returned home. Hezbollah fighters on Thursday moved into the areas that Nusra abandoned under the ceasefire, the media unit said.

Between his bubbly personality, high level of play and impact in the community, Wilfork emerged as a fan favorite with the Patriots. It's because that the overalls, more than a Patriots' uniform, a Texans' uniform or going back, a Miami Hurricanes' uniform, which Wilfork wore in college, are probably Wilfork's most famous article of clothing he's ever worn. Peace out! I'm out of here.

Wilfork played 13 National Football League seasons, including the last two in Houston.

His retirement video says Wilfork will host a tailgate at Gillette Stadium before the Pats season opener on September 7.
