Bruce Irvin reacts to his suspension


From Bruce Irvin's twitter account:

"It's crazy to see your name run across the ticker for negative things. I messed up and I feel so bad and have been depressed for weeks now. I've had sleepless nights because I knew when this came out, I would let so many people down, including myself. I have worked so hard to rebuild my image and it takes another blow. I see the negative comments and I see the position and both drives me to come back and have an incredible season."

"To my real fans, I see the comments and I really appreciate it during this tough time. Just shows people only love you when you're on top, but when adversity hits they show their true colors. Once again, I'm sorry and take full responsibility for my actions. I will take this on the chin and move forward to become the best person on and off the field."

"12th man, I'm sorry I let you down but I promise you when I come back -- all hell will break loose. West Virginia, I love you always and know you have my back and always will. Love on my fans and shout out to my haters - I know you loving it right now!"

This follows an official statement from Bruce via the team, from when the news was announced:

"I want to apologize to my teammates, coaches and Seahawks fans for making a mistake when I took a substance that is prohibited in the NFL without a medical exemption. I am extremely disappointed in the poor judgment I showed and take full responsibility for my actions. I will not appeal the discipline and instead will focus my energy on preparing for the season so I can begin earning your trust and respect again. I look forward to contributing to the team the moment I return."
