NFL to re-open Josh Brown probe in light of new documents

The NFL said in a statement released Thursday afternoon that the league “did not have the benefit or knowledge” of the Josh Brown documents that were made public on Wednesday.

But now that the NFL has that information, the league intends to “review the additional information available” and “determine the next steps within the context of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.”

The full statement:

“NFL investigators made repeated attempts-both orally and in writing-to obtain any and all evidence and relevant information in this case from the King County Sheriff’s Office. Each of those requests was denied and the Sheriff’s Office declined to provide any of the requested information, which ultimately limited our ability to fully investigate this matter. We concluded our own investigation, more than a year after the initial incident, based on the facts and evidence available to us at the time and after making exhaustive attempts to obtain information in a timely fashion. It is unfortunate that we did not have the benefit or knowledge of these materials at the time.

“In light of the release of these documents yesterday, we will thoroughly review the additional information and determine next steps in the context of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy. We will not be making any comments on potential discipline until that time.”
