EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants released placekicker Josh Brown on Tuesday, six days after police documents revealed Brown admitted to repeatedly abusing his former wife while they were married.

The move came shortly after the player issued a statement insisting that he never hit his wife during a six year period when he admits spousal abuse.

Giants President John Mara says the team's beliefs, judgments and decisions were "misguided" in how it handled its relationship with Brown. He indicated the Giants did not know the full extent of Brown's problem until last week.
