Quentin Groves, the Browns linebacker busted last week in a prostitution sting, has apologized to the Cleveland organization for his actions.

"I want to apologize to the Browns organization, our fans, and the city of Cleveland for putting myself in this situation," Groves said in a statement Wednesday. "I realize I let a lot of people down, most importantly my family. I am committed to learning from this and moving forward."

The Beachwood, Ohio, police, the Cuyahoga Sheriff's office, and the Orange Village police all took part in the joint operation in which a female officer acted as an escort and took several calls from men interested in sex for hire.

Police say Groves, 28, was one of those men. According to a police report, Groves made arrangements for certain acts and determined a price for a "full-service" visit. He was arrested April 17 when he showed up to the prearranged hotel. Officers confiscated $195 in cash and a box of condoms, according to FOX8.com. At least 14 others were arrested in the three-day sting.

Groves entered a no contest plea to disorderly conduct in Bedford Municipal Court Tuesday, and is scheduled to appear in court again May 10.

The Browns declined to comment on the situation.

"We are aware of the situation and do not have any further comment," Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis told The Huffington Post.

Groves, an outside linebacker for the Cleveland Browns, signed a two-year, $2.8 million contract as an unrestricted free agent in March. He played for the Arizona Cardinals last season. The former 2008 second-round pick drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars has also played for the Oakland Raiders.
