The Giants release of Kicker Josh Brown.
After much criticism, The Giants released Kicker Josh Brown and issued the following statement on Giants.com.
“We believed we did the right thing at every juncture in our relationship with Josh,” said team president John Mara. “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.
“We have great respect and feel strongly about our support for the good people who work tirelessly and unconditionally to aid the victims of domestic violence and who bring awareness to the issue. We have been partners with My Sisters’ Place (a domestic violence shelter and advocate based in Westchester, New York) for nearly 20 years. The leadership of that organization has provided invaluable insight as we have considered our decisions in this matter. We value and respect their opinion, and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.”
The Giants also released an “edited” version of Josh Brown’s statement. There is a noticeable key line omitted.
It is important to share that I never struck my wife, and never would.
It is unclear for the differences in statements. With Brown released the kicking duties now fall on Robbie Gould who was added days before the Giants / Rams game in London.
