Patriots' Vince Wilfork rips ex-teammate for calling wife ugly

Friday March 22nd, 2013

New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfolk is listed at 6 feet 2 inches and 325 pounds. Ex-teammate Ted Johnson may want to think about that the next time he speaks ill about Wilfork's wife.

Johnson apologized Friday after answering who he thought had the ugliest wife on the team on a radio broadcast.

"This is a big, big man and this guy had his way with the Texans this season," Johnson replied. "He won't hear this. Vince Wilfork."

Wilfork then tweeted a response to Johnson's comments, as reported by USA Today.

Every1 is entitled to their own opinion but it is [expletive] up when a x-teammate that I actually looked up to and enjoyed playing with takes shots at my wife for whatever reasons. I love my wife and my family. She is my everything. I don't care when this was said no one should cross that line. The line has been crossed so it is what it is. All I wann say is [expletive] you! you don't want to [expletive] with me or my family take shots at me all day but not them I have a great family life and blessed to have them.

Wilfork's wife, Bianca, later posted her own message.
