Talk about timing … just days after Ezekiel Elliott had his 6-game suspension upheld, the NFL has circled back to Josh Brown – banning the admitted domestic abuser 6 more games.
The veteran kicker sat out 1 game in 2016 … after a lengthy investigation ultimately led to his release from the NY Giants.
The big difference from Zeke — Brown has accepted his punishment, the NFL told Adam Schefter.
“We reopened the investigation based on new info … concluded there was a violation of our personal conduct policy and imposed 6-game suspension which he accepted without appeal,” the league said.
“Timing has nothing to do with Zeke … made no sense to hold this until Zeke was complete.”
Brown — who’s currently UNEMPLOYED — maintains that he never hit his wife … after being arrested in May 2015 on suspicion of domestic assault. Charges were never filed.
As for Elliott … the Dallas Cowboys superstar is hoping to hear from a U.S. District Court judge today in Texas. The RB — who is slated to play in Week 1 — is seeking a temporary restraining order so he can keep suiting up.
