Former Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson said he was, "truly sorry to all the women I've impacted," in a video that was posted by the Cleveland Browns on social media on Friday.

In the video, Watson said, 'I'm truly sorry to all the women that I've impacted in this situation. The decisions that I made in my life that put me in this position, I would definitely like to have back, but I want to continue to move forward and grow and learn and show that I'm a true person of character, and I'm going to keep pushing forward."

Watson also answered a question regarding what he's planning to do to make sure he's ready to play for the Browns. 

"I know I have a lot of work to put in, especially on the field to make sure I'm ready to play whenever that time comes, whenever I can step back on the field. But also, the biggest thing is, I want to continue counseling, and I want to make sure I'm growing as a person, as an individual. From my decision-making on and off the field, and I want to make sure that I'm evolving in the community as much as possible, that's for the Cleveland community, the NFL community, and beyond."
