The public message from Browns coach Hue Jackson and executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown was that RB Isaiah Crowell is taking necessary steps to make up for his Twitter mistake.
“It starts with grave disappointment in the action in the first place,” Brown said. “But to his credit, [after it happened] he called both Hue and I on his own to be accountable. Obviously, it was a huge mistake but he has taken steps at least at the outset that he should.”
Crowell quickly issued a formal apology, and attended the funeral of one of the police officers killed in Dallas earlier this month and pledged his first game check to the Dallas fallen officers’ fund, the story said. He'll likely feel some backlash, but still looks poised for a Jeremy Hill-like role in what could be a run-heavy Browns offense.
