San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman blasted Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield for allegedly not shaking his hand during the pregame captain’s meeting before the 49ers/Browns game on Monday night.  But now Sherman is backtracking and says he will issue Mayfield an apology.

After a video showing Sherman and Mayfield shaking hands circulated around social media Tuesday, Sherman said during a call-in to the Pat McAfee Show that “It’s definitely my bad. I never want anybody to have to deal with some (expletive), I mean, some stuff that they didn’t do. And so, you know, the questions that he’s gonna get and the annoying, nonsense questions about some stuff that happened in a game that’s already been done, sure he’ll get an apology for that. I’ll probably reach out to him via text or social media to actually get a hold of him and talk to him in the person, I mean, on the phone. Sherman continued. “He definitely deserves an apology, and that’s my bad on that.”
