The National Football League slapped American Josh Brown with an additional six-game suspension for violating the personal conduct policy due to domestic violence accusations, the United States media reported on Friday.

This means nothing in the grand scheme of things because Brown is/was never going to play again after he was given a one-game ban previous year and subsequently released by the Giants.

"We reopened the investigation based on new info", the league explained in a text message.

The news' timing coincides with Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's wait to hear if he will be granted a temporary restraining order on his own six-game suspension.

Meanwhile, the National Football League is embroiled in a legal battle with Ezekiel Elliott over the six-game suspension Roger Goodell handed down to Elliott for domestic violence allegations made against him in July 2016. During the duration of the TRO, Elliott would be eligible to play for the Cowboys (unless Goodell places Elliott on the exempt list-see below). He said he never hit, slapped or choked her. I kicked the chair. The team even signed him to a new two-year, $4 million deal in April 2016, although the Giants were aware of his arrest for domestic violence. The decision to extend the ban follows a league review of Brown's repeated abuse of his former wife while they were married. "I held her down", Brown said. "The holding down was the worst moment in our marriage", Brown recalled. Because I never handled these underlying issues I became an abuser and hurt [my wife] physically, emotionally and verbally.

Yadlin stated that it was now important to keep the escalation in check and to prepare for a Syrian-Iranian-Hezbollah response. Israel has been waging a long-running air campaign to prevent sophisticated weaponry being transferred to Hezbollah.

The Giants' decision to move on from Brown came just hours after the veteran released a statement in which he apologized for his actions.

Brown was charged with fourth-degree domestic violence in May 2015. "Never did those types of things". Now the league has 'a baseline suspension of six games without pay for violations involving assault, battery, domestic violence, dating violence, child abuse, other forms of family violence, or sexual assault, with consideration given to possible mitigating or aggravating circumstances'.

The documents it released included journals and emails and they detailed a history of abuse far greater than Brown acknowledged when he spoke about being disciplined before the season started.

"The world now thinks that I beat my wife".

The league maintains that announcing Brown's punishment in light of Elliott's situation is purely coincidental.
