The defensive tackle also won his first ring since getting his first in his rookie season, which was in 2004. He bounced back from a season-ending Achilles injury as the Patriots defense showed dramatic improvement.
Although the 11-year veteran now has the opportunity to retire on a positive note, he has no plans to do anything other than play for the Patriots in the 2015 season.
“I’m already looking forward to next year to see if we can do it again. I still have a lot of football in me,” Wilfork said in an interview with Patriots beat writer Jeff Howe.
Howe shared Wilfork’s comments on his Twitter account.
Wilfork said he worked too hard to get back this offseason to give it up now. Already focused on defending the title.
