Former Seahawk Josh Brown: ' I never struck my wife'

Former Seahawks kicker Josh Brown released a statement Tuesday, saying "I never struck my wife," following a report last week that police documents reveal he admitted abusing his wife while they lived in Washington state.

Brown's statement was released via ESPN NFL Insider's Adam Schefter's Facebook page:

"I am sorry that my past has called into question the character or integrity of The New York Giants, Mr. Mara or any of those who have supported me along the way. I have taken measures to get help so that I may be the voice of change, not a statistic. It is important to share that I never struck my wife, and never would. Abuse takes many forms, and is not a gray area. Through the past several years I have worked to identify and rectify my own behaviors. The road to rehabilitation is a journey and a constant modification of a way of life. My journey will continue forever as a person determined to leave a positive legacy and I embrace the opportunities to show and speak about what has helped me to be that man. In the interim, I am cooperating with the Giants and the NFL. Thank you to everyone that has supported me, I will not let you down."
