Falcons Cut Rookie Free Agent Linebacker Torrey Green Amid Sexual Assault Allegations
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – The Atlanta Falcons have cut rookie free agent linebacker Torrey Green as Utah law enforcement authorities investigate allegations of sexual assault made against him while he was a student at Utah State last year.
Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Green was cut Thursday morning after the team learned of the allegations the night before.
No number was listed for Green to reach him for comment. Messages left with his agent were not returned.
Logan Police Capt. Curtis Hooley says his department investigated three separate allegations of assault made against Green in 2015.
Hooley says two cases were closed because there wasn’t enough evidence. A fourth case was investigated by North Park police, which did not return a message Thursday.
Hooley says Utah prosecutors are reviewing all the cases again after The Salt Lake Tribune reported the allegations in July.
