The NFL placed Eagles offensive lineman Josh Sills on the Commissioner Exempt List following today’s indictment by a grand jury in Ohio.
Sills may not participate in practices and games or travel with the team while on the List. The charges come just 10 days before the Eagles take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
Sills was charged for an incident that occurred in Ohio’s Guernsey County in 2019, as per TMZ. Sills allegedly “engaged in sexual activity that was not consensual and held a victim against her will.”
The Philadelphia Eagles released this statement:
“The organization is aware of the legal matter involving Josh Sills. We have been in communication with the league office and are in the process of gathering more information. We have no further comment at this time.”
Sills was an undrafted free agent following the 2022 NFL Draft. He was signed by the Eagles and made the 53-man roster but only appeared in one game this past season.
