Last word (we hope) on Dezmon Briscoe's absence



dezmon.jpgWe told you earlier about Dezmon Briscoe's absence from this week's minicamp and the, um, complexities associated with that absence.

But we can now report that Briscoe has surfaced -- kind of.

He posted earlier tonight on Twitter, confirming the personal issues involving his reality-TV star girlfriend and the mother of his son that have been widely reported on gossip sites the past two days, while vowing to return to One Buc Place on Monday to resume offseason workouts.

"I could of handled the situation better," Briscoe wrote this afternoon. "I'm still wrong and I wanna apologize to @Roycelr because she don't deserve that. Love you.

"As far as me not being at camp. There are personal reasons. I love my teammates and I'll be back at workouts Monday. . . Everyone that knows me know I'm a team player till I die. No individuals."
