Ben McAdoo: Giants won’t ‘turn our back’ on Josh Brown

LONDON — The Giants might have left Josh Brown behind for their trip to London, but Big Blue’s coach says that the team isn’t leaving the troubled kicker out in the cold.

“We’re not going to turn our back on Josh,” McAdoo said Friday. “He’s a teammate and he’s a guy that we’re hoping makes strides.”

McAdoo added that he plans to keep his conversations with Brown private and that the team is not worried about distractions and “the outside noise.”

“He’s working towards improving himself,” McAdoo said, later adding, “Josh is a man of faith. He has taken steps to try to improve himself. (You) try to support him so he can get better.”

Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas, one of the team’s three captains, said Friday that he is still reading and learning about Josh Brown’s domestic violence history and recent revelations.

But Casillas had clear perspective on what he had read so far.

“What was said was done is not what we represent as Giants,” Casillas said at Syon House in Brentford.

Unfortunately, co-owner John Mara’s decisions to both re-sign and continue to employ Brown mean that the Giants now represent tolerance of domestic violence, particularly after Mara stunningly admitted on the radio Thursday that Brown already had told him of abuse and clarified he simply wasn’t sure to what “extent.”
