FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets receiver Braylon Edwards has apologized to his teammates, coaches, family and fans, a day after he was arrested for drunken driving.

Edwards practiced with the Jets on Wednesday and later released a statement through the team.

"I would like to apologize to my family, my fans, Mr. (Woody) Johnson, Mike Tannenbaum, Rex Ryan and my teammates. I will respect the process that is in place and will fully cooperate with the league," he said.

"I am truly happy to be a member of the New York Jets and I hope I have the opportunity to retire here. I now have to regain the trust of my teammates, the organization and the fans.

Tannenbaum said Tuesday night that Edwards would be active Sunday night against Miami.
