Chase Winovich has a bone to pick with Greg Bedard.

One of the most recent columns from Bedard, the owner of the Boston Sports Journal and a frequent guest on Felger & Mazz, had this to say about Winovich’s “mouth” potentially getting him in trouble with the Patriots:

There’s also the issue of his mouth, which is a concern internally because he rarely thinks he’s wrong and is a bit of a locker room lawyer (sounds like someone around here who writes about football). I’ve floated moving him to (inside linebacker) but that has been shot down because if of the lack of faith he will consistently do the correct things within the scheme.

Winovich responded pretty strongly to Bedard’s assertions about his “mouth” when he joined Zolak & Bertrand on Thursday.

“I don’t even know who Greg Bedard is, and I’m not exactly sure why he’s slandering my name and making it seem like I’m a problem,” Winovich said. “I really was a little confused. He doesn’t even quote anonymous people, he just speculates on rumors and stuff he’s heard. It just doesn’t make sense, and it’s a little unfair. But hey, people are allowed to have their own opinion and that’s part of the whole ‘control what you can control’. So I don’t know who’s saying these things to him, or if he’s just making it up, but it’s pretty cheap journalism.”
