Brown has been released by the Giants, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports. Brown had previously been placed on the commissioner's exempt list after the NFL re-opened its investigation into Brown, following the release of additional documents pertaining to his May 2015 arrest for domestic violence.
Brown will be placed on the commissioner's exempt list, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. The NFL re-opened its investigation into Brown, following the release of additional documents pertaining to his May 2015 arrest for domestic violence. The Giants announced shortly thereafter that the placekicker won't travel to London for Sunday's game against the Rams. The league is now taking matters out of the team's hands, keeping Brown off the field until further notice. He may not be allowed to play again this season, and even if he is, the Giants might opt to release him.
The Giants released a statement Thursday noting that Brown won't travel with the team to London for Sunday's game against the Rams, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. With the release of new-found documents related to Brown's arrest in May of 2015 for domestic violence, the NFL has re-opened its investigation in order to see if there were additional violations of the Personal Conduct Policy. He already served a one-game suspension to kick off this season and will miss at least one more contest following Thursday's developments.
The NFL announced Thursday that the league plans to re-open its investigation into Brown, following the release of additional documents pertaining to his May 2015 domestic violence arrest. A statement released by the league Thursday noted "we will thoroughly review the additional information and determine next steps in the context of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy. We will not be making any comments on potential discipline until that time." The league previously suspended Brown for one game at the start of the current campaign for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy after conducting an investigation in the wake of Brown's arrest.
Brown converted three field-goal attempts and his only PAT during the Giants' Week 5 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Since coming off suspension, Brown has attempted multiple field goals in all but one game this season, nailing nine kicks in total. While he's yet to attempt any from longer than 50 yards, he has nailed four from 40-plus, with his longest coming from 48 yards out. As long as he remains the leg of the Giants' up-tempo offense, Brown will possess a high fantasy floor at an inconsistent kicker position.
