Former Georgia Tech and current Denver Broncos defensive end Adam Gotsis has been arrested on rape allegations dating back to 2013 in Georgia, per the Denver Post.
According to the report, the 6-foot-5, 295-pound Gotsis is accused of “overcoming the will” of a 25-year-old woman in Atlanta on March 9, 2013. The woman reported the rape on Feb. 1, nearly five years after the alleged altercation.
The Broncos released a statement, per the Denver Post:
“We were recently informed of an investigation into an alleged incident involving Adam Gotsis that occurred in 2013 when he was in college. Our organization was aware of his arrest on March 7, and it is our understanding that no determination has been made at this time as to whether any charges will be filed.
“The Broncos take an accusation of this nature very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the legal proceedings. This issue was promptly reported to the NFL as soon as we learned of it, and we will remain in communication with the league office regarding this matter.”
Gotsis, who was born in Australia, was a second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He played sparingly in 2016, notching 1 pass deflection, 1 fumble recovery and 14 tackles. He appeared in 16 games with 13 starts last season, registering 41 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 fumble recovery and 4 pass deflections.
In three seasons at Georgia Tech, Gotsis played in 32 games with 105 tackles, 26 for loss, 11 1/2 sacks, 2 interceptions, 4 pass deflections, 2 fumble recoveries and 1 touchdown.
