Texans DT Vince Wilfork to push everyone to raise performance
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

After spending 11 seasons with the Patriots, Texans defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is ready to put pressure on his new teammates and coaches to raise their performance levels, according to the team's official website.

"You have to put pressure on each individual, and that’s what I’m going to do," Wilfork said. "I’m going to put pressure on everybody. Not just myself. Not just the older guys. Not just J.J. (Watt). The quarterback. The coaches. No. It’s everybody."

"I’m not a rah-rah guy," Wilfork said. "And that’s one of the things that they’ll get to know quick. I love to have fun. I have the passion. I love the game. But if I need to say something, I will say something."

Entering his 12th season, the five-time All-Pro selection has recorded 516 total tackles, 16 sacks, 25 passes defensed, three interceptions and four forced fumbles.

Texans DT Vince Wilfork, DE J.J. Watt excited to work together
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

After being signed by the Texans this offseason, defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is excited to be a part of a defensive line that includes J.J. Watt, reports ESPN. Watt told Wilfork that he is excited, as well.

"Yeah, we talked since I signed," Wilfork said in an interview. "He’s probably more excited than I am. But little does he know, I’m very excited to come down here."

Although the Texans will rely on Wilfork to be one of the leaders on the defense, he isn't going to try to change anything about Watt.

"My goal is to let J.J. be J.J.," Wilfork said. "I’m pretty sure the coaching staff is going to feel the same way, when you have a guy that dynamic. You can’t ask him to change anything. He’s been a beast, and hopefully he’ll continue to be that beast and I’m looking forward to it."

Over his 11-year career, the 33-year-old has compiled 516 total tackles, 16 sacks, 25 passes defensed, three interceptions and four forced fumbles.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Former Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork announced on Twitter that he's signing with the Texans. "This has been an interesting process for me and my family, one we have taken very seriously and given a lot of thought," Wilfork wrote.

"We want to thank the Kraft family and the entire Patriots organization for the last 11 years, however we will be starting a new chapter in our lives as Houston Texans," he continued. "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, 33, has spent his entire career in New England. The Pats declined his option, making him a free agent.

He's played a full 16 games in four of the past five seasons and has 516 career tackles to go with 16 sacks. Wilfork is reuniting with Texans coach Bill O'Brien and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, who formerly coached in New England.
