NFL: Derek Anderson apologizes for remarks
CLEVELAND — Former Browns quarterback Derek Anderson has apologized after saying Cleveland fans "don't deserve a winner" following his release.
Anderson was let go by the club on Tuesday, ending an uneven five-year stint with the Browns. In an e-mail to The (Willoughby) News-Herald after his release, Anderson wrote that he will never forget Browns fans cheering when he was injured on the field. He called them "ruthless" and said he hopes when he comes back to Cleveland with another team that "we roll them."
On Wednesday, Anderson said he regretted some of the things he said. He said his remarks were out of character and that he had some great times playing in Cleveland, "especially during the 2007 season."
Anderson made the Pro Bowl in '07, but had two sub-par seasons after that.
