Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen began draft day with an apology.
On a day he hoped would be a celebration, Allen instead started Thursday with an early morning apology for years-old Twitter activity unearthed on the eve of the 2018 NFL Draft, according to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith.
Allen, who made no official comment on the matter, is attending the event live in Frisco, Texas, and widely expected to be drafted among the top 10 picks.
Allen used derogatory terms and responded to a question with "If it ain't white, it ain't right" in a 2013 tweet.
Why are you so white ? - If it ain't white, it ain't right!

Prior to that, Allen used a variation of the "N" word in a series of tweets in 2012 and 2013.
The tweets no longer appear on Allen's account.
