Latest On Giants’ Josh Brown

The Giants left kicker Josh Brown behind when they traveled to London today, and subsequently signed veteran Robbie Gould to take his place. Whether or not that means the club is bracing for Brown to be suspended is unclear, but the NFL is considering placing Brown on the exempt list, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today (Twitter link).Josh Brown

The Giants were unaware of Brown’s journal entries, emails, and letters admitting to domestic violence, a team spokesman tells Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com (Twitter link). The team had not read or heard them until they were brought to light yesterday. However, as Diana Moskovitz of Deadspin writes, the league could have easily obtained similar documents by requesting a copy of the Browns’ divorce file, which is public record.

Additionally, the NFL had been involved in at least one incident involving Brown and his wife, a source tells Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. During the Pro Bowl in January, an intoxicated Brown reportedly pounded on his wife’s hotel room door, leading the NFL to help Brown’s wife in switching rooms.

    I have yet to delve into the exact details of Josh Brown’s dysfunction, but I am wondering if this is a case of CTE. Any brain damage may not have necessarily come from his time in NFL.
    Or, he simply could just be a bad guy.

      I’m sure CTE is definitely an option for a kicker… Must have gotten hit on the head with a ball multiple times…

      he is a kicker they don’t get hit

        Still, hits over the years. Brown definitely played other positions in little league and high school have been shown to add up over time. Any hit on your brain, especially at a young age can cause CTE

          Great so every NFL player that commits domestic violence has CTE.

        • Most every American male would have CTE then. (Although that might explain a lot of things.)

      Didn’t you read any of his journal entries?

      He talks about not having feelings and posing like his wife is his slave. Seems like a sociopath, as apparently he’s been that way since he was seven years old.
