Vince Wilfork’s Memorial Day includes dancing while smoking ribs

Vince Wilfork has been recovering from a major Achilles injury since the early parts of the 2013 NFL season. Fortunately for Patriots’ fans, it appears that the recovery is moving along pretty well.

In a recent video posted to Wilfork’s wife’s Instagram, we see Wilfork putting on a full arsenal of moves that require a good bit of lower leg dexterity.

Take heart Wilfork fans, it looks like your guy will be ready for the 2014 season.

Here is the proof:

It was a tumultuous stretch for Wilfork and the Patriots between the regular season and the months following. Wilfork appeared to be disgruntled with the team and looking for a way out of the franchise that originally drafted him.

However, as is often the case with Patriot veterans, Wilfork eventually settled down and signed whatever restructured contract Bill Belichick offered.

Since then, he’s been nothing but smiles to the public. This video might be the most encouraging look fans have had of 75 since before his injury.

Even more encouraging should be the state of those ribs. They look well seasoned and well sauced. And where do you get that rack for smoking? Looks fantastic. I guess those are the sorts of things you get when you sign big contracts in the NFL.
