Browns’ Crowell Pledges to Dallas Police Fund as Apology
BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell says he will donate about $35,000 to a fallen officers' fund in Dallas as part of his apology for posting a drawing on Instagram last week showing a police officer getting his throat slashed.
In a video posted on Facebook Wednesday, Crowell again apologized for the posting and said he would donate his first game check to a fund for the police officers slain and injured during a sniper attack last week. He didn't say what the exact amount would be but his yearly salary is $600,000 covering 17 weeks of the NFL season, including a bye.
Crowell posted the drawing after men in Louisiana and Minnesota were fatally shot by police. He subsequently deleted the post, but a screenshot continued to be circulated on social media.
In the video, Crowell says he wants to be part of the solution.
