The NFL and the Giants both said that they had no knowledge of the information included in the release of new documents by the King County, Washington Sheriff regarding Giants kicker Josh Brown’s history of domestic violence, but it appears that’s not quite true.

One of the pieces of information included in those documents, as reported by Ralph Vacchiano of, involved NFL security moving Brown’s ex-wife Molly from her hotel room at the 2016 Pro Bowl after an incident with the kicker. Per Molly Brown, she took the trip with her sons and the daughter she had with Brown while the couple was in the process of getting a divorce at her ex-husband’s request.

Once there, she said she was subjected to “cutting comments” and had her phone taken by Brown so he could search her texts before pounding on her door (they had separate rooms) while drunk until NFL and hotel security intervened. She said NFL security eventually moved her to a new room on the Friday night before the game, something that Albert Breer of confirmed with the league, and the family had no further incidents over the course of the weekend.

That information raises further questions about why the league cited “insufficient information” about the issues between Brown and his ex-wife when they opted to suspend Brown for one game earlier this year.
