Washington Commanders release kicker after being sued for sexual assault

The Washington Commanders have decided to cut ties with kicker Brandon McManus six days after he and the Jacksonville Jaguars were sued by two women, accusing him of sexual assault.

The suit came about after McManus was on board the flight to London for the Jaguars two international games in the 2023 season. The lawsuit claims that the two women were flight attendants and McManus was inappropriate in multiple ways.

According to the lawsuit, the two women worked as flight attendants on the Jaguars’ Sept. 28, 2023, Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings charter flight and they allege the flight ‘quickly turned into a party’ as McManus and several other players disregarded the flight attendants’ personal space, air travel safety, and federal law. The lawsuit also claims that McManus recruited three other flight attendants to the party and passed out $100 bills to encourage them to drink and dance inappropriately for him.

The Commanders waiting six days to make a move with McManus shows a willingness to let information come to them and allow them to make a more informed decision. The release of McManus means that there isn’t a kicker on the roster, which will likely be addressed before rookie minicamp.
