HOUSTON -- "I'm the best dad in the world right now," Vince Wilfork said with a grin after practice Saturday.
What Herculean feat won him the title? Introducing his daughter, Destiny, to J.J. Watt.
"One of the reasons I came here was because of my daughter," said Wilfork, who signed with the Texans this spring after 11 seasons with the New England Patriots. "She said the only reason she was going to move here is if she got a chance to meet him. I said, 'OK, well' and I made that promise some months back. It finally paid off for me right now."
The meeting produced this adorable photo:
Destiny was not happy about moving .... Until she realized @justinjames99 played for @houstontexans she said daddy if we move to Texas and you sign this contract you have to have JJ Watt over for a BBQ and I have to meet him.... He sent her a special video to hold her over and today her wish came true ! Thanks @justinjames99 😘
