A Buffalo Bills assistant coach had a brutally honest comment on rookie quarterback Jake Fromm in the wake of his text message controversy.
A 2019 text message conversation featuring Fromm was posted by a woman on Twitter last week. Fromm said in the conversation that guns should be made more expensive so only “elite white people” can buy them.
“I am extremely sorry that I chose to use the words ‘elite white people’ in a text message conversation,” Fromm wrote on Twitter. “Although I never meant to imply that I am an elite white person,’ as stated later in the conversation, there’s no excuse for that word choice and sentiment.”
Fromm reportedly apologized to his teammates in a meeting last week, but he surely still has a lot of work to do.
Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll said on Friday that Fromm is aware of that.
“He knows that he has a lot of work to do to earn the trust of his teammates back,” Daboll said Friday, per ESPN. “And I’m a big believer in actions speak louder than words. So I know he’ll be committed to that. We have a strong leadership group, a strong culture in our room. Jake is a young man who apologized and, you know, where we go moving forward.
“He’s got a lot to do to earn the trust and confidence of the players and everyone else in the building back. I know he’ll work hard to do that.”
Fromm was a fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. He’s reportedly been upfront with the Bills throughout this controversy.
