Report: Josh Brown will not appeal decision to be placed on commissioner’s exempt list
Monday October 24th, 2016

Giants kicker Josh Brown will not appeal the NFL’s decision to place him on the commissioner’s exempt list, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports

Brown was placed on the list Friday and had three days to file an appeal. 

The decision to place Brown on the list was made after the release of police records in which Brown admitted to abusing his ex-wife.

“I have physically, mentally, emotionally and verbally been a repulsive man,” Brown wrote in a journal entry. “I have abused my wife.”

The commissioner’s exempt list is a form of paid leave that has previously been used in the cases of Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy. 

Brown did not travel with the team for Sunday’s game in London and is not expected to play for the Giants again.
