The attorney for Broncos DE Adam Gotsis, Manny Arora, tells Nicki Jhabvala that they’ve received no update yet from the Fulton County District Attorney’s office regarding the rape allegations made against Gotis.
Gotsis was arrested back on March 7 for allegations that he raped a woman in Georgia in 2013 when he was still playing for Georgia Tech. The woman reported the alleged rape on February 1 of this year, which led to his arrest.
Gotsis was never charged in the matter and eventually released on $50,000 bond.
In March, a spokesman for the Fulton County DA’s office said the results of the investigation were expected within 90 days, but it’s now over 90 days.
The Fulton County DA’s office tells Jhabvala that “the investigation is still ongoing.”
“This is a big year for Mike,” McGeoghan said, via Chargers.com. “Obviously, everyone evaluated him at the combine when he was coming out. He was an unbelievable talent. I tell all the young guys that the biggest year in their whole career is between their first and second year. That first year, you’re just a rookie. You’re just trying to figure out where your locker is, what the day is like and how to take care of your body. As you become a second-year player, you start to get into a routine. You develop your habits. You get a better idea of all that. Now Mike, . . . he’s been just phenomenal in our room. What’s great is that everybody in our room feels a sense of responsibility to help him improve. The veterans even mentioned when we first met, and I’m talking about individually, all of them said one of their goals was to help Mike and get him up and running. I’ve spent a ton of time with Mike, football and non-football related, getting to know him because it’s very hard to do this job, and be really hard on somebody, if you don’t have a relationship with him. But he’s been great, and I really enjoy being around him.”
- Brian Costello of the New York Post writes that the Jets are counting on free agent addition Spencer Long to be an upgrade to Wes Johnson and help their offense function better in terms of their new zone-heavy running scheme.
- The Jets signed Long to a four-year, $27.5 million contract this offseason. However, Costello notes that while it appears to be a large commitment from the Jets, it’s really just a one-year, prove-it deal, as the only guaranteed money included in the contract is for the 2018 season.
