    BOSTON (CBS) — There are certain things that should always be off limits for conversations, especially in public forums, and former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson is learning that today.

    Johnson, now a sports radio host in Houston, was participating in a segment called “None Of Your Business.” Johnson was asked by a caller to say which of his former teammates had the “ugliest spouse.” The website Houston Media Watch captured the audio and posted the segment online.

    “Oh, my gosh. All right, you know what? I got it. Yeah, I got it. This is a big, big man,” Johnson said. “He won’t hear this — Vince Wilfork.”

    Well, Johnson’s presumption proved true, but only temporarily, as the audio clip made its way around Twitter on Friday morning. And apparently, Wilfork caught wind of the comments, because he tweeted out a warning shot.

    “Let me apologize to my fans in advance of whatever I may say today,” Wilfork tweeted, “but I do not play when it comes to my family.”

    Wilfork’s previous tweet was directed at @TedJ52, Johnson’s Twitter account, according to his bio on the Sports Radio 610 site.

    “[You're] barking up the wrong tree,” Wilfork wrote to Johnson. “I hear and see everything [expletive].”
    Later, Wilfork posted a note he wrote on his iPhone to Twitter and directed it at Johnson. It read (edited for clarity):

    “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but it is [messed] up when an ex-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 wanna 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 [am] blessed to have them.”

    Johnson tweeted out an apology later Friday morning.

    “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,” @TedJ52 tweeted. “Vince and his family are outstanding people who I have admired since they arrived in [New England]. I learned a big lesson today and feel terrible.”

    Wilfork and Johnson were teammates in 2004, when Wilfork was a rookie and Johnson was in his final season in the NFL.

    Wilfork met his wife, Bianca, when he was a freshman at the University of Miami.

    That's ****ed up. You don't publicly take shots at another mans wife, especially if you know them personally. Really mean spirited.

    She ain't even that bad.

    Wilfork looks like Carl Winslow in that photo and she looks much better than Harriet, so Johnson doesn't know what he's talking about.

    If I'm not mistaken, Ted Johnson has pretty well-documented mental problems resulting from chronic head trauma/concussions so not really that surprising...

    Maybe football players just all get hot chicks and Mrs. Wilfork, even if not that bad, ends up being around the bottom of the barrel by comparison because everybody else is pulling above average tail.

    What an a-hole. Wilfork handled it better than Johnson deserves.

    610 ... That's all anyone needs to know about this story. Why anyone listen's to that insufferable garbage is beyond me.

    Wilfork's response via twitter (NSFW language):

    Further proof that SR610 is garbage for even allowing that to take place. They should have screened out the caller and dumped when it got to that. Pathetic radio.

    Its a segment called none of your business. Basically the caller asks a question to the host so they don't answer and say none of your business. So really it is all on ted. He should have just said none of your business.

    It is probably true, but that is a question you don't answer. You know any answer is going to be insulting.

    Edit: Anybody else notice Wilfork never called his wife beautiful in his response?

    I have listened in on that segment a few times and this one's all on Ted. As a former player he definitely broke the code going after a guys family like that.
