Attorney: Giants DT 'cleared of all wrongdoing' after rape accusation

New York Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley has avoided serious assault charges after being accused of raping a woman and hitting her with his vehicle last month.

Bromley's attorney, Alex Spiro, said his client has been "cleared of all wrongdoing" on Friday.

Bromley met the woman on Instagram, according to the original New York Post report, and the incident allegedly occurred after they went out to a hookah bar in Manhattan. The 6-foot-3, 306-pound lineman has denied the woman's accusations from the start, according to a Friday report from the New York Daily News.

The Giants picked Bromley, a Syracuse product, in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft. He will try to make the leap from reserve to full-time starter in his third season, and legal troubles won't help him accomplish that.
