Former Oakland Raiders Player Antonio Brown Issues Public Apology In Hopes Of NFL Draft
Tom Brady already liked his post.
It's hard to keep track of how many teams AB has been cut from. After being axed from the Raiders, Patriots, and the Steelers, it looks like he's desperate for another chance. The latest Antonio Brown news (or should we say drama?) is his public apology on Instagram for his offensive past behavior.
Tom Brady already liked the post.
Here's the problem. According to TMZ, the apology is more about things he's said on social media than the more serious allegations against him, including sexual assault.
His apology is very vague. In his Instagram post to 3.7 million followers, the NFL wide receiver said, "First and foremost, I’d like to apologize to my family, friends, and anyone who I offended. I never once meant to make anyone feel like I wasn’t thankful and appreciative of the opportunity that I was afforded to play the game I love..."
He went on to say that his behavior was inexcusable, but then brought in 'false allegations' against him. *Hmm*
It seems AB is referencing the caustic text messages that went viral after he blasted a woman who accused him of sexual misconduct.
His post has nearly 171k likes and counting.
Most of the comments under his post are supportive. One said, "Sometimes we have to take a step back to see the full picture. Stay blessed SBM."
However, some angry Instagram users saw his post a little differently. One commented "Wonder who wrote this for him?" which gathered a lot of likes. Another said, "How many of these u gonna do?"
We can't help but notice how his focus seemed to be getting the NFL's attention.
In his post, he also wrote: "To the organizations that I offended, I offer my sincere apology to you and my hope is that you forgive me and help me move on from this minor setback."
Here are the text messages he sent to the woman that went viral.
