I know there’s big-time consequences for things in life. I disappointed a lot of people who really care about me like my brothers on my team, the coaches around here, this whole organization, people who have supported me, my family, my dad. I let a lot of people down. I am really just trying my best to make it up to them and do whatever I’ve got to do to get past this.
“It was hard coming back into the locker room, looking at people who care about me in the eyes, knowing that I did something stupid,” he continued. “We’re just trying to get ready and keep winning like we have been doing and play our rival team, the Giants, this week. That’s what we’re trying to focus on.”
