Former Giants kicker Josh Brown reiterates his admission that he physically abused his now ex-wife in an interview with “Good Morning America” scheduled to air on Thursday. That interview will come one day after commissioner Roger Goodell noted that the NFL’s investigation into Brown is ongoing.

Brown also, for the second time, chose to claim that he never hit his wife, Molloy, even though doesn’t dispute that he was violent with her.

“I mean I had put my hands on her,” Brown says in the interview when asked about his previous admission of physical, verbal and emotional abuse of his wife. “I kicked the chair. I held her down. The holding down was the worst moment in our marriage.”

“I never hit her. I never slapped her. I never choked her,” Brown added. “I never did those types of things.”

That distinction, which does not change the fact that the Brown was physically violent with his wife, is something he has noted before. When he was released by the Giants, Brown gave a statement to ESPN in which he apologized to his team but not his ex-wife and noted, “It is important to share that I never struck my wife, and never would.”
