Seahawks' Bruce Irvin Jokingly Apologizes On Twitter For Drunk Driving, Because April Fool's


Welcome to April Fool's Day, everyone. First up, we have Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin, who took to Twitter Wednesday morning to "apologize" for getting behind the wheel after he "had a few drinks":

But he was only kidding! Get it? Drunk driving, DUI's -- excellent topics for the Seahawks player to be joking about.

But it looks like the player unsurprisingly faced some swift criticism, for which he told people to "relax."

Irvin, 27, was previously suspended by the NFL for four games at the beginning of the 2013 season for violating the league's performance-enhancing substance policy. The Seahawk's 2012 first-round draft pick took to Twitter that time as well to apologize, however, that of course was not an April Fool's joke.

The NFL declined to comment, and a request for comment from the Seattle Seahawks was not immediately returned.
