Patriots CB Ryan fined, apologetic for crotch grab

The SportsXchange

New England Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan was fined $10,000 for grabbing his crotch while crossing the goal line in Sunday's loss to the New York Jets.

Ryan was crossing the goal line after the 79-yard interception return. He jumped into the air with his back to end zone and made the gesture with his left hand while landing on his back to complete the pick-6.

"First off, I just want to apologize to all the fans and all the viewers that witnessed that," said Ryan, a rookie playing in place of Aqib Talib. "I own up to it 100 percent. It's not acceptable. It's not acceptable for me and this team. And I want to put it behind me and I want to move on and focus on Miami. Just let people know it won't happen again and that's not who I am."

Ryan said Thursday the worst part of the celebration wasn't ridicule from teammates, but facing his angry mother after the game.
