Foerster said in a statement that he will seek professional help.
“I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions. I want to apologize to the organization and my sole focus is on getting the help that I need with the support of my family and medical professionals.”
The Dolphins issued a statement saying in part that while they will help Foerster resolve his personal issues, they have no tolerance for Foerster’s actions.

“We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior. After speaking with Chris this morning, he accepted full responsibility and we accepted his resignation effective immediately. Although Chris is no longer with the organization, we will work with him to get the help he needs during this time.”
The video was originally posted on Facebook by Kijuana Nige, a model who lives in Las Vegas. The Facebook video has been deleted, but in the age of the Internet, few posts are ever permanently deleted. It is unknown if Nige was the original recipient of the video or how the video was became public.
