Nick Fairley Says Sorry Over New Facebook Account
- Updated: June 9, 2012
A day after making a new Facebook account, Detroit Lions defensive end comes out and says sorry? Fairley was arrested for a DUI in May and in April for second-degree possession of marijuana.
Fairley means a lot to the Lions. He could have a big impact like Ndamukong Suh does. While playing in 10 games healthy last season, Fairley had 1 sack and 15 tackles.
THIS IS WHAT HE POSTED ON FACEBOOK:
After taking some much-needed time to reflect on recent incidents, and after conversations with my advisors, teammates, and members of the Lions organization, I would like to make the following statement:
I want to personally apologize to my fans, teammates and the Detroit Lions organization for bringing this unwanted attention to our team. I recognize my actions were inexcusable and I personally need to uphold the expected standard of behavior of a professional athlete. I do not take for granted this opportunity and feel blessed everyday to play in the NFL.
At this time, I am fully cooperating with the Mobile, Ala. Police Department. I am now focused on moving forward and committing my focus to football. I would like to thank everyone for your concern and understanding.
