Atlanta Falcons rookie Torrey Green is under investigation as part of a double rape case.

The linebacker, who signed with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent back in April, is now being investigated by law enforcement after several different claims against him emerged.

According to the report from TMZ Sports, two different women have told police that Green sexually assaulted them during his time at Utah State.

Ruin My Career

Per the report, the first incident occurred in January of 2015 where the woman alleges that Green forcefully removed her clothes and began having sex with her against her will. This incident was apparently reported that night.

Per TMZ: "After the incident, the woman claims Green said to her, 'You aren't the kinda girl that would report rape? Because that would ruin my career.'"

Locked Room

The second alleged incident happened later that year, in November, where a different woman said Green took her into a room at a party where she had been drinking and he locked the door.

Apparently, the woman says she remembers saying “no” and trying to leave the room, but then remembers Green on top of her with her pants off. That woman also went to police, but according to law enforcement, she later stopped cooperating.

There is a third case of sexual assault against Green on top of this, where a further woman claims that the linebacker groped her multiple times against her will. She also reported it to the police.

All these cases are currently being reviewed by the district attorney's office, who will decide whether or not to press charges.
