Josh Brown Cut By NY Giants

10/25/2016 11:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1020-josh-brown-getty-01Josh Brown doesn't have a job ... 'cause the NY Giants just announced they've cut the kicker.

In a statement, Giants co-owner John Mara said, “We believed we did the right thing at every juncture in our relationship with Josh. Our beliefs, our judgments and our decisions were misguided. We accept that responsibility."

Last week, police in Washington state released documents connected to Brown's '15 domestic violence arrest -- including his journal -- where he acknowledged having abused his ex-wife.

The Giants quickly moved Brown from the active roster to the Commissioner's exempt list ... before completely cutting ties Tuesday.

Brown -- who was suspended by the NFL for 1 game earlier in the year, prior to the release of the police docs -- could face further discipline from the league.

NY Giants Kicker 'I'm a Wife Abuser, Porn Addict' ... Police Docs Say

10/20/2016 5:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1020-josh-brown-getty-02NY Giants kicker Josh Brown admitted to abusing his ex-wife, viewed himself as "God" and her as a "slave" and acknowledged a porn addiction ... this according to police documents. 

Brown's private journal -- along with letters and emails -- were part of Brown's domestic violence case in King County, Washington stemming from a 2015 arrest. 

Brown was charged with 4th degree assault/domestic violence after an incident with his ex-wife -- but the charge was eventually dropped. 

Now, the documents have gone public -- and it paints a very disturbing picture of Brown. 

"I have physically, mentally, emotionally and verbally been a repulsive man," Brown wrote in one of his journal entries, obtained by SNY.tv.

In that same entry, he circled the words, "I have abused my wife."

In another letter he wrote to friend back in 2014 as part of counseling sessions with his ex, Brown explains his damaged mindset. 

"I have been a liar for most of my life ... I made selfish decisions to use and abuse women starting at the age of 7 to fill this void."

"I objectified women and never really worried about the pain and hurt I caused them. My ability to connect emotionally to other people was zero. My empathy levels were zero."

"Because I never handled these underlying issues I became an abuser and hurt [my ex-wife] physically, emotionally and verbally. I viewed myself as God basically and she was my slave."

In another document, Brown refers to himself as a porn addict -- saying he "viewed pornography on a consistent basis to manage my desire for physical contact."

"I developed into a sexual deviant that viewed sex as a sport all most [sic]."

As for the Giants, they signed Brown to a $4 million, 2-year contract earlier this year -- and team officials have stood by him despite his domestic violence arrest and the frightening allegations against him.

However, it's not known if the team knew about his written admissions -- handed out by cops this week -- when they signed Brown.

The NFL had suspended Brown for 1 game without pay for the arrest (the season opener) -- citing a violation of the league's personal conduct policy.

Breaking News

0929-josh-gordon-TMZ-02Cleveland Browns superstar Josh Gordon is headed back to rehab ... the team just announced.

 25-year-old Gordon just issued a statement saying, "After careful thought and deep consideration I've decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility."

"This is the right decision for me and one that I hope will enable me to gain full control of my life and continue on a path to reach my full potential as a person."

"I appreciate the support of the NFL, NFLPA, and the Browns, my teammates, my agent and the community through this extremely challenging process."

The Browns also issued a statement saying they support Gordon. 

Josh has been battling substance abuse for years -- he missed most of the 2014 season and all of the 2015 season due to substance abuse policy violations. He was also suspended the first 4 games of the 2016 season after another positive test. 

He was getting ready to make his comeback to the NFL in Week 5 against the Patriots -- but clearly, that's not happening now.

Browns RB Isaiah Crowell Pledges Money to Police Org. After Cop Killing Post

7/13/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell is donating this season's first NFL game check to a Dallas police organization after facing intense backlash over an Instagram post ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The post was an illustration of a police officer having his throat slashed by a masked man. Crowell immediately deleted it, but not before it spread across social media.

Crowell apologized, but as we first told you ... police organizations felt the apology was empty, and one threatened to organize a police boycott of Browns home games this season.

Now, Crowell's putting his money where his mouth is, vowing to donate an entire game check to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, which supports families of officers killed in the line of duty.

FYI -- Isaiah will reportedly make $600k this season, and a game check is typically 1/16th of a player's salary ... so the donation should be about $37,500.

Check out the video ... it's clear Isaiah realizes he made a big mistake.

Cleveland Browns Police Threaten to Pull Protection Over Player's Dead Cop Post

7/12/2016 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0712-isaiah-crowell-cleveland-police-GETTY-01Cleveland Browns player Isaiah Crowell's apology for a tasteless social media attack on cops is falling on deaf ears -- and in fact, police tell TMZ Sports ... they'll pull out of the Browns' stadium in protest.

Crowell got blasted for posting an illustration last week of a cop getting his throat slashed by a masked person. He posted it on Wednesday -- after Alton Sterling and Philando Castile's deaths, but the day before 5 Dallas officers were shot and killed.

The running back deleted the post and the Browns demanded he publicly apologize, which he did.

But Stephen Loomis, President of Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association, thinks the "store-bought apology" isn't enough. "He needs to go to Dallas, help the families who lost their loved ones last week, write them a check, look them in the eyes and give a heartfelt apology."

Loomis says Crowell's post was as "offensive as putting a picture of historical African-American men being hung from a tree in the 60s." He adds that if Crowell doesn't go to Dallas and make a donation, "I will pull Cleveland officers, sheriffs, state troopers out of First Energy Stadium this season if he doesn't make it right."

As for Crowell admitting he was wrong and acted out of rage -- Loomis says, "You're a grown ass man, and you claim you were too emotional to know it was wrong? Think we'll accept your apology? Kiss my ass." 

Crowell did meet with Cleveland's police chief, but Loomis isn't satisfied. He's demanding the Browns and/or the NFL drop the hammer.
