Vince Wilfork Signs With Houston, Patriots Fans Suffering Whiplash

Looks like the prior reports were false and Vince Wilfork is signing with the Texans.

Contrary to prior reports, Vince Wilfork is taking his talents to Houston.

Below is the transcribed statement from Wilfork's twitter feed.

"This has been a interesting process for me and my family one we have taken vert seriously and give a lot of thought we want to thank the Kraft family and the entire Patriot organization for the last 11 years however we will be starting a new chapter in our lives as Houston Texans ... The coaching staff in Houston has made this new exciting transition feel like home to us. We will forever be Patriots in our hearts thank you everyone for everything."

Wilfork will have plenty of familiarity in Houston and it's one place that Patriots fans can be extremely happy/relieved for the big man. He will join J.J. Watt and Jadaveon Clowney to crush the Colts twice per season, as well as be a part of a team staffed by former Patriots.

Best of luck to Vince, and thank you for everything.
