11:35 AM PT — Sherman is finally opening up about the incident, saying he is “deeply remorseful” for his actions.
“I behaved in a manner I am not proud of,” the NFL star said Friday. “I have been dealing with some personal challenges over the last several months, but that is not an excuse for how I acted.”
“The importance of mental and emotional health is extremely real and I vow to get the help I need. I appreciate all of the people who have reached out in support of me and my family, including our community here in Seattle.”
