Richard Sherman is taking a step back after sparking a mild controversy Tuesday by accusing Baker Mayfield of snubbing him of a pregame handshake before their Monday Night Football matchup.

Shortly after Sherman said Mayfield refused to shake his hand, video emerged proving that to be untrue.

Sherman was asked Wednesday on the "Pat McAfee Show" whether he'd extend an apology to Mayfield.

"It's definitely my bad. I never want anybody to have to deal with some shit that they didn't even do," Sherman said. "The questions that he's going to 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 ... on the phone, because yeah, that sucks."

He added: "He definitely deserves an apology and that's my bad on that."
