The nose tackle won the Super Bowl twice with the Patriots, and was selected for the Pro Bowl five times, according to the NFL. His final game was last January's playoff loss to the Pats in Foxboro.

Wilfork had played the past two seasons with the Houston Texans, but played his first 11 seasons with the Patriots.

Wilfork announced that he's retiring by posting a sponsored video on Twitter.
