Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin spoke publicly for the first time since suffering cardiac arrest on the field in the Bills Week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The full six minute video was posted to Hamlin’s Instagram and filled at the Bills facility in Orchard Park, New York.
“I can’t tell you how appreciative I am of all the love, all the support and everything that’s just been coming in my way,” Hamlin said. “What happened to me on ‘Monday Night Football’ I feel is a direct example of God using me as a vessel to share my passion and my love directly from my heart with the entire world and I’m able to give it back to kids and communities all across the world who need it the most, and that’s always been my dream. That’s always been what I stood for and what I will continue to stand for.”
