Former Patriots player Vince Wilfork tailgated Pats v. Texans game at Gillette

FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (WHDH) - Former Patriots player Vince Wilfork was busy tailgating the Pats v. Texans game at Gillette Sunday morning.

Wilfork played in New England as a defensive tackle for 11-seasons before heading to Houston to play for the Texans for two seasons.

He said that throughout his 13-season career, he always wanted to tailgate prior to a game. Wilfork determined that would be the first thing he did once he retired.

At Gillette today, Wilfork said, “No better time to be back at Gillette Stadium, where I started and ended my career, and two teams I played for. Great organizations, the Texans and Patriots. It’s an unbelievable feeling to be back here among fans that I played in front of, home and away with the Houston Texans and New England Patriots. It’s an honor.”
