LB Torrey Green Apologizes For His Multiple Rape Cases Being a ‘Distraction’; Vows NFL Return
Former Utah State linebacker Torrey Green was signed as a rookie free agent by the Atlanta Falcons, but they quickly distanced themselves from him, waiving the LB on Thursday after they were made aware of four rape allegations against him.

According to TMZ, Green wanted to apologize to the entire Atlanta Falcons organization for this ‘distraction’ and vowed to be back in the NFL once he clears his name.
“Green has hired a crisis manager — Zack Teperman of ZTPR — who says he’s 100% confident Green will not only be exonerated, but continue his NFL career.
“Our client Torrey Green would like to apologize to Arthur Blank, Dan Quinn, Jeff Ulbrich and the entire Falcons organization for this distraction and the unfortunate accusations,” Teperman says.
“At this time Torrey has complete faith that any further investigation will prove his complete innocence and he will be exonerated.”
“It’s a shame his name is being dragged out there in the media and that this young man’s bright future in the NFL is taking a major hit.”
“Torrey will continue to cooperate with authorities if needed, and looks forward to his next NFL opportunity. We will have no further comment at this time.””
Football needs to be the last thing on his mind right now. The allegations alone will probably keep every team in the league away from him in the future.
