Former Patriots nose tackle Wilfork joins Texans

HOUSTON (AP) Longtime New England nose tackle Vince Wilfork has signed with the Houston Texans.

Wilfork announced the decision on Twitter on Monday, then the Texans confirmed the signing. The 33-year-old has spent his entire 11-year career with the Patriots.

Now he'll join a Houston unit led by Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt and that features last year's No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, who was injured for most of 2014.
