Yesterday, reports out of Costa Rica surfaced that New England Patriots safety Duron Harmon was denied entry into the country on Friday and later expelled from it. The 27-year old was detained because a combined 58 grams of marijuana were found in his luggage after an incoming flight from Fort Lauderdale.
Yesterday, Harmon released an apology through his Instagram account:
I would like to extend my deepest regrets and sincerest apologies to Patriots fans, my teammates, my coaches, the Krafts and the NFL. In addition, I apologize to my friends, family and especially my wife and two sons. Friday does not represent who I am or the person I strive to be. I am committed to doing everything within my power to regain the trust and respect of everyone who believes in me as an athlete, role model, person and friend. I appreciate your understanding and, once again, I apologize with all my heart.
Harmon, a former third-round draft pick, is basically a starter for the Patriots as the team’s number three safety. Losing him to a potential suspension would be a blow to a New England defense that is currently seeing some personnel turnover.
