Ex-Browns Safety Jermaine Whitehead 'Deeply Sorry' For Threatening Posts

Former Cleveland Browns safety Jermaine Whitehead apologized Tuesday for threatening posts he made on social media following the Browns' loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday. "I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for my actions following our game with Denver. That was totally out of character for me. I do not justify my actions, but was extremely frustrated with the way I had played and our team losing because of it. I was playing with a broken hand, but that is no excuse for my actions, and I am deeply regretful. "I want to personally apologize to anyone who I offended, especially those who I was responsive to on Twitter. My choice of words did not reflect who I am, but only what I was feeling. Also, my sincerest apologies to my teammates, coaches, the Browns organization and most of all, the fans and kids that motivate me to even pursue this dream. Again I am deeply sorry for my unacceptable behavior, and I wish the Browns the best of luck in the future. I love you!" In the series of tweets to critics, @j2whitehead_ wrote about beating people up or killing them and called some "cracker." There were also threats to Dustin Fox, a local Browns reporter who criticized Whitehead's effort in the game. The Cleveland Browns waived safety Jermaine Whitehead on Monday morning, just hours after he posted profanity-laced and threatening comments on social media following Sunday's loss at Denver.
