Feliciano implied teammate Spencer Burford was at fault for a protection bust that left Chiefs All-Pro defensive tackle Chris Jones unblocked.
A quick chop is not needed if the guy that was supposed to block him, blocks him— Jonathan Feliciano (@MongoFeliciano) February 12, 2024
Burford replied to Feliciano's remark, appearing stunned at the comment made by his teammate.
Sheesh…I open up my app to this…get well soon bro…— Spencer Burford (@SpencerB74) February 13, 2024

Felicano then apologized to Burford, owning his mistake and offering words of encouragement to the second-year offensive lineman.
Im sorry bro. I woke up hungover and being a bitch. In trying to have ones back I hurt u. It’s f-Ed up and I apologize. You got nothing but greatness ahead of you. I’m sorry bro— Jonathan Feliciano (@MongoFeliciano) February 13, 2024
No Super Bowl loss is easy, and with the wound still fresh, Feliciano responded in a way the nine-year veteran clearly regretted, thus prompting his apology to Burford.
