Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White apologized for comments he made on Twitter related to the George Zimmerman verdict.
Zimmerman, who had been charged in the shooting death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin, was found not guilty.
Several NFL players reacted to the verdict over Twitter, with White writing, "All them jurors should go home tonight and kill themselves for letting a grown man get away with killing a kid."
He later apologized in another tweet.
"I understand my tweet last nite was extreme," White wrote Sunday. "I never meant for the people to do that. I was shocked and upset about the verdict. I am sorry."
The NFL said on Sunday it would not comment on the Zimmerman verdict.
