While on a Houston radio show, former New England Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson said that Vincent Wilfork’s wife is the ugliest in the NFL. Johnson and Wilfork played together on the 2004 New England Patriots team. “You know what, I’ve got it,” Johnson said on CBS Houston when a caller asked him to identify the player with the least attractive wife. “And this is a big, big man. This guy had his way with the Texans this year. He won’t hear this — Vince Wilfork.” [Listen to the audio here] However, Wilfork did hear the comments made by Johnson about his wife and let’s just say he was not too happy. Wilfork took to Twitter to confront Johnson about his comments. Johnson saw Wilfork’s response to his comments and immediately apologized. Maybe he was afraid the 325 pound defensive tackle wouldn’t be so nice the next time the pair ran into each other. Or, maybe he was scared Wilfork would come down to Houston and physically make his apologize. Johnson too took to Twitter to apologize for his comments. I just made a huge error in judgement and want to apologize to Vince and his wife for comments I made earlier today on a Houston radio show — Ted Johnson (@TedJ52) March 22, 2013 Vince and his family are outstanding people who I have admired since they arrived in NE.I learned a big lesson today and feel terrible. — Ted Johnson (@TedJ52) March 22, 2013   I have personally apologized to the family and feel awful.It was a huge error in judgment and I’m sorry for upsetting Vince’s family. — Ted Johnson (@TedJ52) March 22, 2013 The last thing I will say about this is that I understand the criticism will own my poor decision. — Ted Johnson (@TedJ52) March 22, 2013   I think it is safe to say if the 2004 New England Patriots ever have a ruin, Johnson and Wilfork will not be talking to one another.
