Condemnation of the New York Giants’ handling of the Josh Brown domestic violence case continued to pour in Sunday. Meanwhile, after a 17-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in London, coach Ben McAdoo continued to deflect questions about the placekicker’s future.

"The front office asked me to focus on the game and that they were going to handle everything and we'd touch base after the game,” McAdoo said. “We'll do that when we get back."

Brown, of course, has been placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt List by the NFL and seems unlikely to ever kick for the Giants again.

We mentioned Annie Apple’s criticism of the Giants earlier today. Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports said Sunday “The NFL today” that “a sampling of executives revealed a strong sentiment that Brown will never kick again after this week's news. High ranking officials from other NFL clubs are dismayed at how they believe Giants and the NFL handled the situation, several suggesting the appearance of preferential treatment for that franchise with Brown handed a one-game suspension rather than the baseline six-game suspension.”

On that show, Boomer Esiason said “I don’t support him (Brown) in any way, shape or form, nor should he ever put an NFL uniform on ever again.”
