Not only did he make TMZ, he made it for getting knocked out.
Now, the second-year lineman is apologizing for an incident outside a bar in Augusta, Ga.
‘’Dear Panther Nation: I would like to offer my deepest apologies to the Panthers organization, my teammates and coaches, the fans and the league,” Hearn said in a statement from his agent, via David Newton of ESPN.com. “I take full responsibility for my actions. There is no excuse for my behavior, and I will learn from my mistakes.”
Hopefully, he also learns to protect his face.
In the video, the 6-foot-4, 315-pounder was knocked flat by a punch from a smaller man, the literal insult to injury. Hearn, undrafted from Clemson, stuck as a member of their practice squad before a December call-up to the active roster.
