NFL Notes: Gareon Conley, Browns, Jets, Patriots


Gareon Conley

Gareon Conley’s lawyer, Kevin Spellacy, clarified his recent remarks that his client had a sexual “event” with the women who accused him of rape.

When I referenced a ‘consensual sexual event,’ I was not referring to intercourse,” Spellacy said, per Ian Rapoport. “That did not happen.

Spellacy added: “Nothing that Gareon has said has been inconsistent.”


Browns executive Sashi Brown said that there’s really no rush to play second-round QB DeShone Kizer.

He’s a young man and he’s going to have a long time that he’s with us and in this league and if things go the way I’m sure he’s planning on it and the way we hope it goes, we don’t have to rush it,” Brown said, via Pro Football Talk.


Jets HC Todd Bowles said that there will be an open competition between Josh McCown, Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty for the starting quarterback job this summer.

“That will determine itself in OTAs and the spring, going forward, how we line up in the summer,” Bowles said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN.
