    CLEVELAND (CBSNewYork) — An NFL player is apologizing for posting a graphic image on Instagram showing a man dressed in all black slitting the throat of a police officer.

    Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell, 23, deleted the image he posted on Instagram showing blood gushing out of the officer’s neck.


    The statement reads: “I am outraged and upset by the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile along with so many others. I am also outraged and saddened by the attacks in Dallas and the deaths of the 5 honorable police officers (Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael J. Smith, Brent Thompson, and Patrick Zamarripa) who were providing protection while trying to keep peace. We have to be better as a society, it’s not about color, it’s about what’s right and wrong. I was very wrong in posting that image. Every single life matters, every death as a result of violence should be treated with equal outrage and penalty.”

    It is not known if the Browns or the NFL will take action against Cromwell over the Instagram post.

    The third-year running back led the Browns in rushing last season with 706 yards. Crowell rushed for 1,313 yards and 12 touchdowns his first two seasons.

    Well I'm sure that's a heartfelt apology direct from Isaiah and not a spokesperson or attorney.

    That's disgusting.

    Also, he's not sorry. His lawyer/agent is.

    good enough
    he posted something offensive(really offensive--idiotic even)
    his employer(or agent) likely dropped a hammer on his dumb ass
    he then asks to be forgiven

    he learned a lesson on how the world works
    when you got shit to lose you gotta learn to shut up

    Browns need to cut this piece of shit. But seeing how the Front office is all black and the coach aswell, It will take Jimmy bringing the hammer down. Crowell sucks anyways fuck the groid.

    Honestly, I would never be on social media if I were a public figure. These guys are crazy to fuck up their money with something as insignificant as a twitter status or Instagram pic.

    Dummy.

    I'm not the type to want people to get fired but this sure seems like a bit much. But what do I know.

    Yes, and I'm sure he's the author of the statement apologizing for the pic of the cop getting his throat slashed. Another well educated athlete with a lot to say. Keep'em coming. I think it's hysterical. Anybody catch the WmaNBA butches with the black lives matter shirts on in warm ups? They also threw in a #Dallas strong on the front. The kicker was the back of the shirt which just had a hashtag with nothing else, waiting for the next victim's name. Very deep.

    Are you celebrating or just giving me the facts?

    I'm just saying it seems like a bit much. Looks like terrorist propaganda like ISIS.

    The picture is clearly referencing ISIS execution videos, but I guarantee you Crowell didn't make that correlation until somebody pointed it out to him.
