(East Rutherford, NJ) -- The New York Giants are parting ways with kicker Josh Brown. The team announced Tuesday they have released Brown, less than a week after new information was released about his history of alleged domestic violence. Brown did not travel with the team to London last week and was placed on the commissioner's exempt list on Friday while the NFL revisits his domestic violence case. Giants team president John Mara said, "We hope that Josh will continue to dedicate himself to rehabilitation, and to becoming a better person and father." Brown was originally suspended for the first game of the season after his arrest in May of 2015. The NFL, however, is revisiting the case after documents were released last week in which he admitted in emails and journal entries to abusing his ex-wife.
