On Monday afternoon, news broke that Washington Commanders kicker Brandon McManus was being accused of sexual assault. McManus, 32, played for the Jaguars last season and was accused of sexual assault by two flight attendants. The lawsuit was filed in Duval County Circuit Civil Court last Friday, and the Jaguars were also named in the suit.

Shortly after the news broke, the Commanders released the following statement:

Earlier today, we were made aware of the civil lawsuit filed on May 24 against Brandon McManus. We take allegations of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter. We have been in communication with the League Office and Brandon’s representation, and will reserve further comment at this time.

McManus’ attorney, Brett Gallaway released a statement saying the claims are an extortion attempt, Bryan Manning of USA Today's Commanders Wire reports.

These are absolutely fictitious and demonstrably false allegations made as part of a campaign to defame and disparage a talented and well-respected NFL player. We intend to aggressively defend Brandon’s rights and integrity and clear his name by showing what these claims truly are — an extortion attempt.
