Former Denver Broncos kicker seems to have found himself in some hot water

Former Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus, who sits at No. 2 on the team’s all-time scoring list, has had a civil lawsuit brought against him and the Jacksonville Jaguars, alleging sexual assault on the part of McManus. Two women who worked as flight attendants filed the lawsuit during a flight to London.

The Jaguars played two games in London last season against the Atlanta Falcons and Buffalo Bills. 

The alleged incident took place on September 28, 2023. The women seek $1 million in damages and have asked for a jury trial. Both women have been removed from the core staff for Jaguars’ flights due to mental anguish and humiliation, which was a big accomplishment for both of them, according to this report from Michael Di Rocco of ESPN. 

The Broncos parted ways with McManus last May. He was signed by the Jaguars two days later and spent the season there, making 30 of 37 field-goal attempts and all 35 of his extra points. But the Jaguars chose not to re-sign him this offseason. 

McManus is currently with the Washington Commanders after signing with them as a free agent in March. McManus, not his agent Drew Rosenhaus, has made a statement on this situation thus far. The Commanders released the following statement, per DiRocco’s report. 

“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.”

More on this situation as it develops.
