Indianapolis Colts wide receiver LaVon Brazill acknowledged that he has made mistakes, costly ones.

Suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL drug policy for failing a marijuana test, Brazill vowed to not repeat his past transgressions.

Brazill said he'll choose making money playing football over using drugs that could cost him his NFL career.

"I know any one of you would choose money any day, so that's gone and I'm choosing money any day," Brazill told Indianapolis reporters.

A sixth-round draft pick last season, Brazill caught 11 passes for 186 yards and one touchdown as a rookie.

Brazill knows there's not much rope left.

"I shot myself in the foot on that," Brazill said. "I didn't take that serious, but now I see that it's serious, Like I said, I'm putting that in the past and I'm moving forward now."

Does he have a drug problem?

Asked that question, Brazill replied: "No, no problem. No more of this. No more of this. This is out of my life and I'm done."
