Bills running back Marshawn Lynch has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of carrying a firearm in a vehicle in California, and he released a statement through his attorney, Gerald Schwartzbach. (Via the Buffalo News)

    “Today I pled guilty to a misdemeanor violation of having a firearm in a vehicle. I am embarrassed by my recent arrest and conviction. I deeply regret that I placed myself in this situation. I have made mistakes in the past. Although I have learned many lessons over recent years, I obviously have not learned enough. I apologize to my family, the Buffalo Bills organization, my teammates, the Buffalo community, and Commissioner Goodell. I have already learned from this recent mistake and am sincerely committed to being a more responsible citizen and better representative of the NFL.”

Lynch was arrested on Feb. 11 in Culver City, Calif., with possessing a concealed, loaded and unregistered firearm.
