CLEVELAND — San Francisco 49ers Richard Sherman spent all day Tuesday claiming that Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield snubbed him during the pregame handshake, which has been proven not to be the case.

Video of 49ers and Browns players meeting at midfield before the coin toss shows Sherman shaking all of the players hands, including Mayfield.

After the game, Sherman told that he was annoyed Mayfield didn't shake his hand at the beginning of the game.

"That's some college s---. It's ridiculous. We're all trying to get psyched up, but shaking hands with your opponent -- that's NFL etiquette. And when you pull bush league stuff, that's disrespectful to the game. And believe me, that's gonna get us fired up," Sherman said.

Sherman took to Twitter to call users out for not believing his claims.

Mayfield himself has not responded to the claim, but his wife Emily Mayfield posted a picture on her Instagram story of Baker shaking Sherman's hand.
