Top QB pick Josh Allen apologizes for offensive tweets that resurfaced on NFL draft day

On the day of the NFL draft, a series of offensive tweets from former Wyoming quarterback and anticipated top draft pick, Josh Allen, resurfaced on social media. Allen has since apologized for the racially insensitive tweets which he wrote in 2012 and 2013 while in high school.

"If I could go back in time, I would never have done this in a heartbeat," Allen told ESPN on Thursday. "At the time, I obviously didn't know how harmful it was and now has become.

"I hope you know and others know I'm not the type of person I was at 14 and 15 that I tweeted so recklessly. ... I don't want that to be the impression of who I am because that is not me. I apologize for what I did."
