BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. had a strong opinion about Giants kicker Josh Brown’s arrest in a domestic violence case, and now former Raven Torrey Smith is also making a statement about the NFL.
Smith tweeted, “Celebrating a TD will get you fined but being an abuser can keep the checks coming in.”
Torrey Smith continued and tweeted:
Brown was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, but will still be able to collect his base salary of approximately $1.15 million and is permitted to attend the Giants facility “for meetings, individual workouts, therapy and rehabilitation, and other permitted non-football activities.”
He is not allowed to attend practices or games. Brown is not expected to appeal the NFL’s decision to place him on the commissioner’s exempt list.
Multiple sources also expressed doubt that Brown would ever kick again in the NFL after documents surfaced this week in which the veteran kicker admitted to domestic abuse against his wife.
