Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – After the Houston Texans loss to the New England Patriots in the playoffs, nose tackle Vince Wilfork hinted that he just might have played his last game in the NFL.
A few months later Wilfork is no closer to officially deciding if he had played his final snap or if he will come back for a 14th season.
“Right now it’s a normal offseason for me,” Vince Wilfork shared Wednesday. “If I was retired now or still playing, this time of the year in the offseason I’d still be doing the same exact thing when it’s time to make a decision I’ll make a decision.”
The 35-year-old is taking his time and enjoying the offseason and everything it provides.
“I’m going to continue playing golf, I’m going to continue to fish, I’m gonna continue to have my own schedule wake up when I want to wake up and do what I want to do,” Wilfork said.
With training camp still months away Wilfork is in no hurry to decide if he’s going to give it another go or not.
“I know how important the offseason is to let your body heal and don’t let emotions get involved with the decision making,” Wilfork said.
While Wilfork has yet to decide whether or not he’s retiring, he has decided that Houston will be his home regardless his choice.
“I don’t plan on moving from Houston no matter what I do in life,” Wilfork said. “I’m going to continue to live in Houston, I think I found my new home.”
