Antonio Brown issued an apology to the NFL and others he may have hurt with his bizarre behavior during an interview with ESPN's Josina Anderson.

"I think I owe the whole NFL an apology and my past behavior," said Brown. "I think I could have done a lot of things better."

"I was pleased to hear that after 140 days that there was some positivity about me because, as of late, I've just been the cancer of the NFL," said Brown.

He was referencing the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's pledge to help Brown through this challenging period.

"In Antonio's situation, I think the first thing for all of us is to think about the well-being of Antonio," Goodell said last week. "To understand what Antonio's going through. …

"We want to help get him on the right track and get him in a position where he is in a zone where he thinks he can be successful in life. And we are confident that can happen. We want to work to do that, and from our standpoint, that's the first step. The first step is making sure that we're doing everything to help Antonio."

Brown did not seem to be buying Goodell's words: "I'll believe it when we see it."
