When Vince Wilfork retired from the NFL in 2017, “Big Vince” retired along with him.
The former New England Patriots defensive tackle, who weighed (at least) 325 pounds during his playing days, has lost a remarkable amount of weight in NFL retirement and showed off his slimmed-down figure Thursday at Gillette Stadium while donning his new Patriots Hall of Fame jackets.
If this svelte version of Wilfork surprises you, you’re not alone. The two-time Super Bowl champion told a great story Thursday of the first time he saw Patriots head coach Bill Belichick after shedding so many pounds.
According to Wilfork, the encounter happened “last year” in Miami when he visited the Patriots at their team hotel ahead of their game against the Dolphins.

“We have not seen this degree of weight loss with any previous medication,” said lead study author Dr. Timothy Garvey in a statement. “More than 50% of trial participants are losing 15% of their body weight, and anywhere between a third and 40% of participants are losing 20% of their body weight.”
The research results are “beginning to close the gap with bariatric surgery”
