So Richard Sherman had to eat his words cause he basically just lied for no reason at all about Baker Mayfield and the handshake controversy. If you missed it after The 49ers 31-3 win against the Cleveland Brows on Monday night Sherman went to the media and called out Baker Mayfield for not shaking his hand. However, Richard Sherman forgot that cameras exist and turns out there is video of Baker shaking Richard Sherman’s hand:

Well, today he went on The Pat McAfee Podcast and had to eat his words and said he’d apologize to Baker Mayfield:

“It’s definitely my bad,” Sherman told the Pat McAfee Show. “I never want anybody to have to deal with 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, you know, 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 … on the phone.
“He definitely deserves an apology, and that’s my bad on that.” “Sometimes you remember things a little differently than it happened,” Sherman said. “Obviously it still motivated me the same way.”
It’s hilarious that Richard Sherman out of all people wants to be the etiquette police. If you have followed his career he has been a bit of a loose cannon when it comes to how to act post game with his Michael Crabtree comments after winning The NFC Championship game and taunting Tom Brady with the “You Mad Bro?!” comments. Anways, fun times; nothing better than fake controversies to keep us entertained on a Wednesday morning.
