JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The NFL says video of Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. witnessing a fight between his girlfriend and the mother of his child includes “disturbing images.”

Fowler took responsibility “for everything that happened” in the 30-second video released by TMZ on Tuesday.

The surveillance tape shows Fowler and the two women standing outside an elevator and talking. Fowler appears to offer a hand gesture for them to start fighting and then steps back. One of the women kicks off her flip flops before they exchange punches. Fowler eventually pulls them apart.

“These are disturbing images and we will review the matter,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.

Fowler says he is “embarrassed and have apologized for my actions to everyone involved.”

“As a family, we have been dealing with this moment and the conflict that led to it since this occurred,” Fowler said in a statement. “The video surfacing is a sad reminder that emotions got the best of all of us. I take 100 percent responsibility for everything that happened.”

The Jaguars said Fowler made them aware of the video before it was released.

“Dante brought the incident to our attention prior to the video being released and was embarrassed and remorseful,” the team said. “Violence of this type against others is unacceptable in our society and to our organization. We will continue to look into the incident while offering resources and providing support to Dante and his family to help them through this private matter.”

The Jaguars selected Fowler with the third overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. The former Florida standout tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the first hour of a rookie minicamp the following week and missed the entire season.

The Jaguars expect him to be fully recovered before the offseason program this year and make a significant impact in 2016.

  1. He was the instigator and he bought the girl to the right..He also refared it until his girl was getting beat and he threw the baby mama off of his girl.What a stank ass coward.He needs his ass beat for taking part in it.Where was the respect for his babies mama.Trifling ass I hope the NFL suspends him because this is domestic violence against his baby mama.He is only sorry because of the video.Coward I hope her brothers or her daddy beats his ass for lack of respect

  2. Why is this such a huge deal? Negro men have always felt that women are here for their entertainment pleasure. And guess what? Women have given them plenty of reason to believe it, as evidenced in this article. Moving on.

    I realize that these are young people but what in the world would they let this pos urge them to fight. This is sad the young women do not know their worth. You let some ignorant negro goat you into fighting over his azz. This is so sickening. Please young ladies RESPECT YOURSELF!!!!!!!!

  4. Some of you are total dumbasses! Rather than decry what this man did- as reported on this black website, you go with the all too familiar, “white folks do it too” excuse. This is bkackAmericaweb- no ones gives a hoot about dem stankin-ass crackers are doing. How sick can you negroes be!?

      I can’t argue with that, I wish a video would surface (not that I want to see abuse of any kind), JM is a worse POS, it’s only a matter of time before he’s back in the news

    So TMZ bought this video to his attention and he tried to get out in front of it being released, good move, but no cigar. Fowler is a POS in my book. I realize that he is young and not fully mature, but he’s in the big leagues now and image is everything. People will scrutinize his every move. You got to be smarter and grow up quick. Had TMZ not had this video Fowler would never have said a thing. He is classless and tacky. The actions of these two women are deplorable as well, however, Fowler was an instigator and more than likely played these women against each other. Sorry piece of dirt.

    Why be upset. How come rich African American Athletes aren’t afforded the same luxuries as rich white business men and politicians?

      Because no matter how high we rise, In their eyes we will always be the American n******s, and less than 1st class citizens. And that’s whether we do great things or bad.
