New court documents from Josh Brown’s abuse case have emerged, and the Giants kicker has issued a statement maintaining his innocence. While he’s apologized and promised to get help, he’s continued to deny the allegations made by his wife, Molly. Read the latest statement here.
“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,” Josh Brown said. “I have taken measures to get help so that I may be the voice of change, not a statistic. It is important to share that I never struck my wife, and never would. Abuse takes many forms, and is not a gray area. Through the past several years I have worked to identify and rectify my own behaviors. 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. In the interim, I am cooperating with the Giants and the NFL. Thank you to everyone who has supported me, I will not let you down.”
As we previously reported, the NFL re-launched an investigation into Josh after new court documents from his 2015 domestic violence case surfaced earlier this week. The documents include a letter allegedly written by the Giants placekicker, in which he admits to being abusive to his wife, Molly Brown.
Back in 2015, Josh was suspended for one game, but a lengthy investigation was not launched, as the NFL was unable to obtain court documents from the Sheriff’s office — until now. The Giants officially released Josh on Oct. 25, and in a statement, co-owner John Mara admitted that the team’s original beliefs, judgements and decisions in the case — i.e. not punishing Josh earlier — were “misguided.”
