EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- In a story Aug. 24 about New York Giants owner John Mara commenting on placekicker Josh Browns one-game suspension, The Associated Press erroneously reported some of the details of the allegations made against Brown and details of the NFLs personal conduct policy. According to the NFL, Brown allegedly grabbed his ex-wife by her wrist, not her throat, and the ex-wifes allegations of 20 abusive incidents were contained in a court filing, not made to the media. Additionally, the NFLs personal conduct policy doesnt mandate a six-game suspension. It calls for a baseline suspension of six games without pay for violations involving assault, with consideration given to possible mitigating or aggravating circumstances.A corrected version of the story is below:Giants owner Mara `comfortable with NFL suspension of BrownA visibly shaken Giants owner John Mara said Wednesday he was fine with the NFLs suspension of placekicker Josh Brown for one game.By JIM HAGUEAssociated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- A visibly shaken Giants owner John Mara said Wednesday he was fine with the NFLs suspension of placekicker Josh Brown for one game, despite allegations in a court document that Brown abused his ex-wife as many as 20 times prior to the Giants signing Brown to a two-year extension last spring.Based on the facts that were placed in front of us, were comfortable with our decision to re-sign Josh and the leagues suspension, Mara said in an emotional address to the media while his team practiced. The easiest thing for us to do would be to get a new kicker. Were trying to be fair to Josh. The easiest thing would be to say, `Terminate him, get rid of him. Were trying to do the right thing. Its not always easy.The 37-year-old Brown was arrested in May 2015, when he allegedly grabbed his ex-wife Molly by the wrist in their Woodinville, Washington, home. Brown was charged with fourth-degree domestic assault. Five days later, the King County prosecutors office dropped the charges because of insufficient evidence. It was reported that Browns ex-wife dropped the charges, and the allegations of 20 abusive incidents were never corroborated by the league because Molly Brown never met with the NFL.The NFL suspended Brown for one game. The personal conduct policy calls for 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.Mara said Wednesday he was aware of the entire situation -- and still sticks by his embattled kicker.When we made the decision to re-sign Josh, we were certainly aware of the arrest, Mara said. We were also aware of the circumstances involved. The charges were dropped. Nothing has happened to make us change our position. We did our due diligence.Brown signed a two-year, $4 million contract last spring, one that included a $500,000 signing bonus and $1 million guaranteed. Mara said he was privy to the information the NFL had collected on Brown.Were aware that there were allegations against Josh, Mara said. We knew that the NFL would conduct an investigation. Were well aware that there were other (incidents). One of the things you learn is that there is a big difference between allegations and convictions. Its important to sort all those things out. Were not going to get into the number of conversations we had with a number of people. We will live with the results of the (NFL investigation) and move forward.A lot of time, people try to make it black and white, Mara added. There are two sides to everything. Very rarely you have a Ray Rice video.Mara referred to the video of the former Baltimore Ravens running back punching his now-wife in the face and knocking her out in an Atlantic City casino elevator, a punch that has essentially ended Rices football career.Mara said he was reluctant to even address the situation, but felt the need.I hesitated to get into it, because it is such a sensitive and difficult decision, Mara said. We had a lot of facts presented to us. We did our homework here. Nothing is going to be said to change that decision.The Giants signed former Jets and Titans kicker Randy Bullock to a one-year contract Monday after a tryout. Bullock will be the kicker while Brown serves out his suspension against Dallas in the season opener Sept. 11. Mara didnt want to speculate what happens when Brown is ready to return.Its going to be a football decision, Mara said. Its going to be decided on the field.Special teams coordinator Tom Quinn said he was fond of Bullock.We always liked him when we faced him, Quinn said. Were always open for competition.Quinn said Brown was stoic in his approach, even after the Giants brought in Bullock.Josh has been the same type of guy, Quinn said. He doesnt seem different.Brown had a Pro Bowl season last year, connecting on 30 of 32 field goals and 44 of 45 extra points for a career-high 134 points.Mara said that Brown has handled the situation well.Josh knows whats expected of him, Mara said. Hes been going to counseling. Hes been a good citizen since hes been here. Hes going to conduct himself in a professional manner. Were an organization that has always tried to do the right thing. Its not always easy, but were going to stick with our decision.Game notes Offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said WR Victor Cruz looked great during practice Wednesday.
