The New York Giants announced that the team has released kicker Josh Brown. Last week NFL.com obtained more than 165 pages worth of documents from the King County (Washington) Sheriff's Office which detail Brown's 2015 arrest. Within those pages are signed documents from Brown admitting, physically, verbally, and emotionally abusing his then-wife, Molly Brown. Also reported by NFL.COM that Brown also violated a restraining order. The Giants released the following statement from team president John Mara:
"We believed we did the right thing at every juncture in our relationship with Josh," said Mara. "Our beliefs, our judgments and our decisions were misguided. We accept that responsibility.
Brown released a separate statement to ESPN earlier Tuesday before the Giants announced Brown's release.)
"The road to rehabilitation is a journey and a constant modification of a way of life," Brown said. "My journey will continue forever as a person determined to leave a positive legacy and I embrace the opportunities to show and speak about what has helped me to be that man. I am sorry that my past has called into question the character or integrity of The New York Giants, Mr. Mara or any of those who have supported me along the way. In the coming days and weeks I plan on telling more of the pain I had caused and the measures taken to get help so I may be the voice of change and not a statistic. In the interim I am cooperating with the Giants and the NFL. Thank you to everyone that has supported me, I will not let you down." Last Friday the Giants Brown was placed on the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List on Friday while the NFL looked into gaining more information into documents that were released last week. Brown did not travel with the team to London against the Los Angeles Rams. Stay tuned for more updates on everything sports.
