BEREA, Ohio — Richard Sherman is backpedaling after blitzing Baker Mayfield.

The outspoken San Francisco 49ers cornerback said Wednesday that he plans to apologize to Mayfield after accusing the Cleveland Browns quarterback 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 defensive star changed his tune.

"It's definitely my bad," Sherman said Wednesday during an appearance on 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.

New footage shows the Baker Mayfield-Richard Sherman handshake beef is a lie

  New footage shows the Baker Mayfield-Richard Sherman handshake beef is a lie Richard Sherman was caught lying about the Baker Mayfield handshake snub.According to a report from NFL.com, Mayfield refused to shake the hands of Sherman and DeForest Buckner when the captains from each team met in the center of the field. According to Sherman, Mayfield disrespected the game with his "bush league stuff.

"I'll probably reach out to him via text or social media to actually get ahold of him and talk to him in person, I mean on the phone. But, yeah, because that sucks. Yeah, yeah, he definitely deserves an apology, and that's my bad on that."

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

Sherman said he still feels insulted by Mayfield, but that he probably should have "phrased it differently" during a postgame interview.

Mayfield will meet with reporters following practice.
