Dee Eskridge apologizes for the incident that led to a six-match suspension

Seahawks receiver Dee Eskridge apologized for the circumstances that led to his six-game suspension at the start of the season. Eskridge was suspended in August for domestic violence with the mother of his child.

“First of all, I want to apologize to the organization, apologize to my family and to everyone that was affected by it,” Eskridge said after practice on Friday, via Fox 13 Seattle’s Curtis Crabtree. “I take full responsibility in this situation, and I’ve grown from it and I’m just ready to put it behind me and be the person I need to be and not all these things.

Eskridge was arrested in February and misdemeanor charges were filed. He entered into an agreement with prosecutors that calls for him to take a course in domestic violence, a moral recognition therapy.

If he completes therapy, the charges will be withdrawn within twelve months.

“Everyone experiences different things and deals with them in different ways,” Eskridge said. “So just being able to, you know, get resources. I do therapy. You know, I’ve done that. So it just helps me grow as a man. I’m a young man. Everyone makes mistakes.”

Between the suspension and injuries, Eskridge played in just 20 of 34 regular-season games over the past two years and had 17 catches for 122 yards and a touchdown.

Eskridge injured a knee in the opening kickoff of the preseason and missed the remainder of training camp. Then came his six-game suspension to open the season.

“It was definitely tough,” Eskridge said. “That was another brick wall, but you know, as this league teaches us, your plan isn’t really always the plan. It’s what God wants. So, you know, I just took it in stride, came back healthy and Now I’m I’m ready.”

The Seahawks are expected to move Eskridge to the active roster on Saturday, allowing him to make his 2023 debut on Sunday.

“He’s ready to go,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “He is really well prepared for that.”
