Jake Fromm's former Georgia teammate says he's 'lost all respect' for the quarterback
It appears Jake Fromm has some fences to mend.
If you missed the news, Fromm issued a public apology after some old text messages were posted online in which the quarterback mentions making gun suppressors expensive so only “elite white people” can afford them.
Here is the public apology issued by Fromm on Thursday, noting he has addressed the situation with his new Bill teammates:
“I am extremely sorry that I chose to use the words ‘elite white people’ in a text message conversation. 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. While it was poor, my heart is not. Now, more than ever, is the time for support and togetherness and I stand against racism 100%. I promise to commit myself to being a part of the solution in this country. I addressed my teammates and coaches in a team meeting today and I hope they see this incident is not representative of the person I am. Again, I’m truly sorry for my words and actions and humbly ask for forgiveness.”
Following all the attention Fromm’s old messages have received, at least one of his former Georgia teammates has issued his thoughts on the subject.
Former Georgia receiver Terry Godwin, who now plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars, had this to say.
“This is showing everybody’s TRUE side. Even from a guy like Drew Brees and Georgia very own Jake Fromm. I’ve lost all respect for both of these people,” Godwin posted on Thursday.
During the 2017 and 2018 seasons, Fromm to Godwin was a connection we heard many times in Athens but now it appears like these two are no longer on the same page for the time being.
