New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount apologized on Twitter Wednesday for holding a shirt mocking Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch at the Super Bowl victory parade earlier in the day.
The shirt took Lynch's "Beast Mode" nickname and replaced the first word with an obscenity.
Thousands of people gathered along snow-lined streets of the parade route in downtown Boston on Wednesday afternoon. Many threw objects for the players to catch as they passed by.
Blount had 40 yards on 14 carries in the Patriots' Super Bowl XLIX victory, while Lynch recorded 102 yards on 24 carries and scored a touchdown. He also had a 31-yard reception.
