The NFL announced yesterday that they would be reopening their investigation into New York Giants kicker Josh Brown after the release of additional documents regarding his May 2015 domestic violence arrest.
In response to this, the Giants announced that Brown would not be travelling to London for their game against the Los Angeles Rams this weekend and that the team would be signing former Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould instead.
However, a statement which the team released on their website has made people question what actual stance the team has on their kicker.

Their statement said: "Josh Brown will not travel with the team to London. In light of the news reports regarding the documents released by the State of Washington yesterday, we think it makes sense to review this newly disclosed information and to revisit this issue following our trip to London.
"The Giants do not condone or excuse any form of domestic violence. Josh has acknowledged that he has issues in his life and has been working on these issues through therapy and counseling for a long period of time. We remain supportive of Josh and his efforts."
At no point did the team say they would be releasing Brown, which was an action many believed the team should have taken the first time around. This has annoyed and shocked fans.
Including Annie Apple, who is Giants cornerback Eli Apple's mother.
Many believe Brown needs to be placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List. Many think he should be cut from the Giants and given similar treatment to what Ray Rice received. We'll have to wait and see for a formal conclusion after the NFL thoroughly reviews the newly revealed allegations against the kicker.
