Ex-Utah State football player claims innocence in assaults

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Former Utah State football player Torrey Green, who was dropped by the Atlanta Falcons this week over multiple sexual assault allegations, believes he will be found innocent.

Green released a statement Friday through a spokesman from a Los Angeles-based public relations company.

Zack Teperman says Green ''has complete faith that any further investigation will prove his complete innocence and he will be exonerated.''

Green also apologized to the Falcons for being a distraction.

The Falcons cut the rookie free agent linebacker Thursday after learning of allegations made while he was a student.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported them last month and Utah prosecutors are reviewing the cases again.

Logan police say four women separately reported being sexually assaulted by Green in 2015.

Two cases stalled due to little evidence.
