Vince Wilfork is the newest member of the New England Patriots Hall of Fame. The former defensive lineman is the 32nd inductee into the Patriots Hall of Fame. He is just the sixth player to be selected by the fans into the Patriots Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility, joining Drew Bledsoe (2011), Troy Brown (2012), Tedy Bruschi (2013), Ty Law (2014) and Kevin Faulk (2016).
“It’s my pleasure to announce Vince Wilfork as our 2022 Patriots Hall of Fame selection,” said Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. “For more than a decade, Vince was a dominant defender in the trenches and anchored some of the best defenses in franchise history. His contributions on the field propelled the Patriots to four Super Bowl appearances during his 11-year career. He was a big man with an even bigger personality and a huge heart. He quickly became a fan favorite in New England. I look forward to presenting him his Patriots Hall of Fame jacket.”
The date and time for the 2022 Patriots Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be announced once it is confirmed.
Congratulations to DL Vince Wilfork, who was voted by fans as the 2022 inductee into the Patriots Hall of Fame.
Logan Mankins and Mike Vrabel were the other finalists.
The date and time of Wilfork's Patriots Hall of Fame ceremony is TBD.
