Cornerback Logan Ryan will involuntarily apologize for his homage to Marshawn Lynch via a fine in the amount of $10,000. But Ryan nevertheless opted on Thursday to apologize for his transgression voluntarily.
“First off, I just want to apologize to all the fans and all the viewers who had to witness that,” Ryan said Thursday. “I own up to it 100 percent. It’s not acceptable. It’s not acceptable for me and this team. I want to put it behind me and I want to move on, and focus on Miami, and let people know it won’t happen again. That’s not who I am.”
It may not be who he is, but it’s what he did.
And it’s still not clear that what he did is completely frowned upon by the NFL. Sure, they fined him for it. But Lynch wasn’t fined for the same move in the 2010 playoffs, and the image of Lynch diving into the end zone with hand on his crotch has made its way into an on-air promo for NFL Network.
