Vince Wilfork still hasn't made up his mind whether he wants to retire from the NFL.

Speaking on NFL Network's Good Morning Football on Wednesday, Wilfork didn't want to use the word retire.

"Right now, I just want to make sure whatever decision I make sure whatever decision I make, I'm 100 percent confident in," he said. "And right now, the only thing I'm doing is enjoying the offseason like I normally do any other year. And I'm just taking my time with everything because I want to make the right decision."

Wilfork spent the past two seasons with the Houston Texans after enjoying the first 11 years of his career anchoring the New England Patriots' defensive line.

Last month, Texans general manager Rick Smith said he hadn't spoken with Wilfork since the season ended and his "expectation" was that Wilfork was done playing.

At 35 years old, Wilfork could wait through offseason workouts and hope to join a team. However, the veteran didn't seem to have much left in the tank last season. Wilfork can hold the door ajar on his career, but could struggle to find a team willing to bring him back if he decides against retirement.
