Last night, NJ.com uncovered several disturbing letters and journal entries from Giants kicker Josh Brown admitting to repeatedly physically abusing his wife throughout the years.
In a personal journal entry attributed to Brown that appears to be from 2013 and is also included in the police documents, he writes: “I have physically, mentally, emotionally and verbally been a repulsive man. … I have abused my wife.”
In a March 2014 letter to friends, Brown writes that, “I have been a liar for most of my life.”
“I made selfish decisions to use and abuse women starting at the age of 7 … I objectified women and never really worried about the pain and hurt I caused them,” he wrote.
“My ability to connect emotionally to other people was zero. My empathy levels were zero. Because I never handled these underlying issues I became an abuser and hurt [my wife] physically, emotionally and verbally. I viewed myself as God basically and she was my slave.”
Near the end of Brown’s letter, he writes, “I am to blame for all of this.”
Brown was suspended for only game of the 2016 NFL season over domestic violence allegations that were made against him by his wife but was still somehow sign a two year/$4 million dollar deal while appealing the suspension.
After the documents were leaked on the Internet, outspoken Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr said he would have put Brown on IR if he had done that to someone he knew.
Gotta love Steve Smith.
