Sherman plans to apologize to Mayfield over handshake flap


BEREA, Ohio (AP) — San Francisco cornerback Richard Sherman says he’ll apologize to Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield for accusing him of not shaking his hand before Monday night’s game.

Sherman initially said he felt Mayfield disrespected him before the pregame coin toss by ignoring him. But after videos showed that Mayfield did shake hands with Sherman, the outspoken Pro Bowler changed his tune.

During an appearance Wednesday on the Pat McAfee Show, Sherman said, “it’s definitely my bad … he’ll get an apology for that.” Sherman said he plans to reach out to Mayfield “via text or social media to actually get ahold of him and talk to him in person. He definitely deserves an apology, and my bad on that.”

Mayfield threw two interceptions — one by Sherman — as the Browns were trounced 31-3 by the 49ers.
