Report says Packers Players Accused of Sexual Assault is Second Year CB Brandon Underwood


A Report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says that the player involved with the alleged sexual assault incident involving a Packers player is second-year CB Brandon Underwood. The paper had the story earlier, but with no name, but about 11:15pm Saturday night released an update saying Underwood is the player involved.

Here is more of what the paper had to say about the case involving Underwood:

Police said seven Packers were at a condo where a party was taking place and where the two women said the assaults occurred.

Six Packers were interviewed and released, but police are focusing on the seventh player, who told investigators that the contact with the two women was consensual, said Sgt. Gerald Grimsled of the Lake Delton Police Department.

Grimsled said police don’t believe the other six players were involved. Lake Delton Police said the six cleared were quarterback Matt Flynn, safety Khalil Jones, guard Josh Sitton, fullback Korey Hall, and linebackers Brad Jones and Clay Matthews.

Police declined to release the name of the seventh player on Saturday. “(The) seventh did have contact with the two females,” Grimsled said. “We were pretty sure of that. Everybody was cooperative.

“It comes down to ‘was it consensual sex?’ One side says yes, the other says no.”

Underwood was selected with the second of the Packers’ two sixth-round draft choices, No. 187 overall in last years draft. He overcame academic difficulties early in his career that led to a lost scholarship at Ohio State by transferring to Cincinnati and paying his own way.

Just a few days ago there was a tidbit in the Green Bay Press Gazette on Underwood. Coach Mike McCarthy called him the most improved 2nd year player on the team. Now with the following coming out, Underwood may find himself in a totally different battle than that of just trying to improve on the field.

    The really sad thing about this is Brandon Underwood is married to a gorgeous wife who just delivered his third baby two weeks ago. How many times are you going to cheat on your wife and three children? that alone makes you even worse than Roethlisberger at least he was a single criminal. When is everyone going to wise up and stop supporting these teams. Stop going to the games and maybe they will start making these athlete’s pay for their criminal behavior.

    Agreed, Not only is he hurting the team and their image, he is cheating on his marriage and that is unacceptable. If guilty, he should be released immediately and the Pack should get in front of this and not stand behind a player who’s values are not the same as the rest of the team.

    So you suggest that the majority of NFL football players, coaches, fans and event workers all pay for the careless actions of a few in the league?

    Interesting.
