A text conversation between the Bills rookie quarterback Jake Fromm and a friend that occurred last year while he was attending the University of Georgia made its way onto the Twittersphere Thursday.

He apologized after screenshots emerged of a text conversation in which he claimed only "elite white people" should be able to purchase guns.

Fromm wrote, "But no guns are good. They need to let me get suppressors," before adding, "Just make them very expensive so only elite white people can get them haha." 

Fromm went on to claim he was not an "elite white person" later in the conversation. 

"I am extremely sorry that I chose to use the words 'elite white person' in a text message conversation," Fromm said in a statement posted to Twitter on Thursday afternoon. "Although I never meant to imply that I am an 'elite white person,' as later stated in the conversation, there's no excuse for that word choice and sentiment. 

"I stand against racism 100%. I promise to commit myself to being part of the solution in this country." 

Needless-to-say, this revelation probably didn't go over well with Fromm's new team mates. 

Fromm said he addressed his behavior with his teammates and coaches in a team meeting Thursday.

"I think we have a mature enough team that our leaders are going to reach out to him and work with him," defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said.

"Jake seemed very sincere in his apology," said Frazier. "We have a very strong culture on our team. Those guys are going to be able to sift through what is real and what isn't real."

Some NFL players reacted to Fromm's statement with skepticism, including his former Georgia teammate, Terry Godwin, now with the Jacksonville Jaguars - who said he's "lost all respect" for Fromm.

The emergence of the Fromm tweets come at a time when the New Orleans Saints are reeling from insensitive comments made by their starting quarterback Drew Brees

Josh Allen was expected to start for the Bills.  He enjoyed a 58.8% completion percentage, 3,089 yards, 20 touchdowns versus 9 interceptions last year.
