New York Giants Release Kicker Who Admitted To Abusing His Wife
The New York Giants have officially parted ways with kicker Josh Brown.
Brown previously admitted abusing his wife in detailed writings, and was initially only suspended for the first game of the season. However, after the details of the abuse become public he was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list and has now been officially released.

“We believed we did the right thing at every juncture in our relationship with Josh. Our beliefs, our judgments and our decisions were misguided. We accept that responsibility. We hope that Josh will continue to dedicate himself to rehabilitation, and to becoming a better person and father. We will continue to support him in his efforts to continue counseling, and we hope that Josh and his family can find peace and a positive resolution,” Giants president John Mara said in a Tuesday statement released to the media.

It is highly unlikely that Brown will ever play in the NFL again and will instead likely face a similar fate to former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.
