NEW ORLEANS -- Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco apologized Tuesday for what he called a bad choice of words when responding to a question about cold-weather cities hosting Super Bowls.
"Yeah, I think it's retarded," Flacco said on Monday. "I guess I shouldn't say [word]. ..."
During Media Day on Tuesday, Flacco said he regretted using the term.
"It was a bad choice of words," Flacco said. "I have a great relationship with Special Olympics back in Baltimore and have had one for many years. I didn't mean to offend anybody but I definitely apologize for that."
On Monday, Flacco was asked if he supported the idea of holding Super Bowls in the elements in cities like New York and Denver.
