Domestic violence and sexual assault are unfortunately back in the NFL news cycle this week. New York Giants kicker Josh Brown is the latest culprit, although the NFL and the Giants have inexplicably delayed punishing Brown for his horrendous actions.
The New England Patriots say they don’t approach the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault as lightly as the league does.
Jonathan Kraft, son of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and president of the four-time Super Bowl Champion Patriots, spoke on 98.5 about the subject on Sunday.
Jonathan Kraft on 98.5 says the Patriots take DV/sexual assault very seriously: "It's something where there literally is no gray area."

It’s important to note, as part of his role as team president, Kraft works closely with his father to represent the Patriots in all league matters and serves on multiple NFL owner committees. Perhaps the Krafts will play a role in forcing the league to enforce harsher penalties for any further misconduct regarding these two issues.
