Falcons Waive LB Torrey Green, Who is Under Investigation for Rape and Sexual-Assault Charges

Torrey Green

The Falcons did not wait around to make a move on Thursday concerning undrafted rookie linebacker from Utah State Torrey Green, as he is under investigation for rape and possible sexual-assault charges.

The Cache County attorney’s office in Utah is actively investigating Green, according to TMZ Sports.

“We don’t want anybody connected to the organization that has those kinds of accusations around them,” Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Thursday. “The player was cut. We found out about it (Wednesday) night. The player was cut (Thursday) morning. The decision was made (Wednesday) night. The coach spoke to the team (Thursday) morning. They understand it. We understand, and we’ve moved on.”
“He needed to go and take care of his situation,” general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “We needed to do the best thing for the organization.”

Dominique Price, Green’s agent, didn’t want to comment on the situation when reached by phone. He was awaiting a call from Dimitroff.

Smart move by the Falcons to not wait around any longer with Green to see how the situation would play out, and instead decided to just cut their losses with the LB now and move on.
