Cruz sent a series of tweets Sunday calling his message from a night earlier a ''mistake,'' adding that he ''never will advocate violence under any circumstances.'' The original message has since been deleted.

''I apologize, that's why I deleted it,'' one of Cruz's messages says. ''I believe conversation not confrontation leads to change and progress.''

Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch volunteer, was acquitted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin after a three-week trial in Florida.

Cruz recently signed a five-year contract extension with the Giants reportedly worth $43 million.
