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."

Texans, Vince Wilfork both interested in possible contract
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

There is mutual interest between free-agent defensive tackle Vince Wilfork and the Texans, Wilfork's agent Kennard McGuire told Houston television station FOX 26. 

"One of the benefits from the organization's standpoint is that of familiarity," McGuire said. "Vince played with [linebackers coach Mike] Vrabel. He was coached by [Bill O'Brien] and [defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel].

"I think all of those elements are appealing to Vince. As he weighs all of the options I believe when that landscape is clear I'm hoping that he will look here."

O'Brien and Crennel were former Patriots coaches and Vrabel was a teammate of Wilfork's with New England. 

The Patriots declined to pick up Wilfork's option earlier this month. Wilfork has spent his entire career to this point in New England, totaling 516 tackles and 16 sacks.
