Vince Wilfork on Signing with the Texans (4/6/15)
Vince Wilfork was recently asked about his excitement level about the upcoming season. He stated that he was "off the charts excited" about being in Houston. Wilfork, a 5 pro-bowler with 2 Super Bowl rings, discussed feeling like a rookie here in Houston and bringing that same high level of passion and love of the game with him. Wilfork stated that the first, and last, place that he wanted to play football after leaving the Patriots was here in Houston. I will speak for Houston and say that we're glad he's here.
Wilfork also expressed a high level of excitement about playing with J.J. Watt. Wilfork went further and said that he wants to "let J.J. be J.J." and that he wants to "learn from and play off of Watt", who he describes as a "great" and "dynamic" football player. This is very high praise coming from a future NFL Hall of Fame inductee who has played with, and against, some of the best to have ever played the game.
Wilfork dislikes being labeled as a nosetackle, despite the success he has enjoyed playing that position throughout his career. He prefers to be known, and describes himself, as a defensive lineman. He believes that he can play anywhere on the line and be effective. We believe that he can do nothing but help J.J. Watt be more effective.
J.J. Watt's new career? (3/30/15)
J.J. Watt will appear in the next episode of Fox's "New Girl". Is the 2015 NFL Defensive player of the year branching out into acting? He'll be appearing as himself, so perhaps not but we're not ruling anything out.
