Josh Brown will not be playing for the New York Giants anytime soon. The team placed him on the exempt/commissioner’s permission list Friday afternoon, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. Mortensen added that his source said that Brown has “has kicked his last kick” with the Giants.
This happened after Adrian Peterson Rob Housler Jersey and Greg Hardy spent most of the 2014 season on the list while they were under investigation. The NFLPA didn’t like the league essentially putting players on paid leave while it figured out what kind of discipline it would hand out.
The same day the NFL released its statement, the Giants released a statement on Brown, concluding, “We remain supportive of Josh and his efforts.” This was despite knowledge of his actions.
Now, Brown’s future with the team is unknown. But in previous cases of being added to the exempt list such as Peterson’s and Hardy’s, the player has remained with the team.
Josh Brown will not travel with the team to London.
In light of the news reports regarding Robbie Gould Jersey the documents released by the State of Washington yesterday, we think it makes sense to review this newly disclosed information and to revisit this issue following our trip to London.
The Giants do not condone or excuse any form of domestic violence. Josh has acknowledged that he has issues in his life and has been working on these issues through therapy and counseling for a long period of time.
We remain supportive of Josh and his efforts.
Brown served a one-game suspension from the NFL at the beginning of the 2016 season stemming from an arrest for domestic violence against his former wife. The Giants were aware of Brown’s history of domestic violence when they re-signed him and continue to publicly stand by him.
Giants owner John Mara said during a radio appearance on WFAN 660 Thursday that “it’s too early to tell” what the outcome will be with Brown and what his future with the team may be. Mara also confirmed that Brown had made the team aware of his history.
