I worked carefully with my advisors and the union to investigate the test results, and I am taking full responsibility for the test results. I'm very sorry for the impact of this situation on my teammates, coaches, Stephen Ross, the entire NFL organization, fans and my family as well. I will continue to work extremely hard during training camp and preseason. During the suspension, I will stay in top shape and will be ready to contribute upon my return."
