Josh Allen apologizes after offensive tweets from high school resurface

Just hours before National Football League teams make their selections for the 2018 draft in Dallas, Allen scrambled to apologise for the posts, saying he was "young and dumb" when he wrote them in 2012-2013, according to ESPN.

The Cleveland Browns have done an admirable job of keeping their No. 1 selection top secret before announcing the pick on tonight's National Football League draft.

If they miss on the first pick, they won't have to wait long to correct it, because they own the #4 pick in the draft as well.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Former Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen has apologized for a series of offensive tweets he sent while in high school.

"If I could go back in time, I would never have done this in a heartbeat", Allen said. In 2018, however, after so many athletes and other celebrities have had old, embarrassing tweets dug up, one wonders how no one suggested to Allen that his old tweets would potentially be looked at by teams, reporters and curious fans.

The Browns had 71 first picks spanning from 1950-1995, 1999-2017.

As Young pointed out, Allen's tweets cited in his story still hadn't been deleted as of Wednesday night, so anyone could have found them.

"It sucks. My family is hurting".

The Cleveland Browns have made many changes to their overall roster this offseason. He was later selected by the Miami Dolphins.
