The Cleveland Browns waived safety Jermaine Whitehead on Monday morning, just hours after he posted profanity-laced and threatening comments on social media following Sunday’s loss at Denver.

Broncos tight end Noah Fant ran over Whitehead on the way to a 75-yard touchdown reception.

That, and a missed tackle on another big Denver play, drew criticism of Whitehead on social media.

Jermaine Whitehead has now apologized on Instagram Tuesday for his offensive and threatening reply to a tweet by Dustin Fix of 92.3 The Fan immediately after Sunday’s 24-19 loss to the Broncos.

Whitehead was waived by the Browns early Monday morning.
