The redemption of Isaiah Crowell, the Cleveland Browns running back, has begun.

Earlier this year, Crowell reacted very strongly to the spate of African American deaths at the hands of police officers by posting a disgusting cartoon image on his Instagram account of an officer having his throat slit by a black man.

Now, after apologising profusely, Crowell has made good on one of the promises that he made, by donating his first game cheque of the season to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation.

The cheque, worth over $35,000 was hesitantly accepted by Sergeant Demetrick Pennie, the President of the foundation, after Crowell convinced him to take it.

"I said, 'Isaiah, why did you send me a check? I told you you didn't have to send me a check,''' Pennie said, via

"He said, 'Sarge, I want to do it. I really want to do it.' I said, 'okay, alright, you will now be an executive level sponsor. So now, you are a celebrity sponsor of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation.'''

"I said I was going to do it and I wanted to follow through,'' Crowell said when asked about the donation.

Crowell's charitable activities coincide with his excellent start to the season, where he is the NFL's number two rusher overall, only behind Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys.
