BEREA, Ohio — Richard Sherman backpedaled 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.

Handshake-gate between Richard Sherman and Baker Mayfield has escalated quickly. While speaking to reporters after the win, Sherman said Mayfield snubbed him at the coin toss, ripping into the second-year “Some of it had to do with lack of protection, some of it had to do with bad throws.

"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."

Sherman reiterated those comments following practice.

"I've said my piece about it. I'm going to have a conversation with him, and then I'm going to be done with it," he said. "It's just funny it got so big. Man, I thought football is what they watch. I guess it's the soap opera."

Just off the practice field, Mayfield said he has not yet heard from Sherman and that he didn't mean to slight the three-time All-Pro in any way.

Mayfield: Critical Rex Ryan not in NFL anymore 'for a reason'

  Mayfield: Critical Rex Ryan not in NFL anymore 'for a reason' Baker Mayfield clapped back at former NFL coach Rex Ryan, who called the Cleveland Browns quarterback "overrated as hell" after Week 3. "It's whatever," Mayfield said Tuesday, courtesy of Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. "In the wise words of (Browns coach) Freddie Kitchens, 'If you don't wear orange and brown, you don't matter.' And Rex Ryan doesn't have any colors right now for a reason, so it's OK." Ryan delivered a scathing assessment of the former No. 1 overall pick Monday morning, hours after a struggling Mayfield was unable to lead Cleveland to a come-from-behind win over the Los Angeles Rams.

“Respect the game,” Sherman said . “You can have rivals, but pay your respect in that moment — especially when you’re young … “I was kind of trying to talk [ to Mayfield ],” Bosa told reporters after the game. “I don’t usually talk, but this game he had it coming. He didn’t say one word back.

Staley loved it, and laughingly said “What a bad site decorum!” Shanahan’s confidence compared to Look at their game- plans . The home team knew that could do whatever they wanted out of the gate, and it Mayfield refused to shake hands before the game, which ticked some of the 49ers players off.

Mayfield, who has become a target by being brash and boastful, joked that is a rare occasion where there wasn't incriminating evidence against him.

"That's the one time the camera and something recording me has gone in my favour," he cracked.

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

Sherman's comments came after 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa mocked Mayfield during the game. The former Ohio State star forced Mayfield into a rushed throw late in the second quarter and then celebrated by pretending to plant a flag on the field.

When Mayfield led Oklahoma to a win over the Buckeyes in 2017, he famously planted a red-and-white OU flag on the mid-field "Block O" at Ohio Stadium, angering the school's fans and players.

"Good for him. He had it premeditated," Mayfield said of Bosa's sarcastic gesture. "He's been thinking about that, obviously, for two years now. That's a long time to think about that loss."
