ENGLEWOOD Blake Comeau Jersey , Colo. (AP) — Prosecutors in Atlanta are dismissing a rape case against Denver Broncos defensive end Adam Gotsis that stemmed from an alleged assault more than five years ago while he was at Georgia Tech.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard Jr. said in a statement Wednesday that “after a careful and thorough investigation” his office had decided not to proceed with the case.

“My office understands the sensitivity and significance of these investigations, but the evidence presented does not warrant any further action in this case,” Howard said.

A 30-year-old woman went to Atlanta police headquarters on Feb. 1 and told an investigator that Gotsis had raped her on March 9, 2013. The woman said she went to a party with Gotsis and then he took her to his home and assaulted her.

Gotsis turned himself in March 7 and he was released that day on $50,000 bond.

A third-year pro, Gotsis continued working out with the Broncos while authorities investigated the woman’s allegations.

“I’m just relieved that everything is being taken care of,” Gotsis said after practice. “You don’t really know what’s happening. You have faith that things are going to work out. I’m glad to be out here with the guys, running around. There’s no place I’d rather be.”

Gotsis found out after team meetings when coach Vance Joseph informed him. Gotsis said it’s been weighing on him.

“It’s harder when you’re alone and you’re really not in the building,” said Gotsis, who’s from Australia. “When you’re in the building http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/dion-sims-jersey , it’s so caught up in football and everything. It’s more when you’re alone and stuff and you’re thinking about it. That’s what you have friends and family for, to support you when you have no one else.”

Asked if he’s concerned about a possible penalty from the league, Gotsis responded: “They did a good job of communicating with the team, making sure everyone is on the same page throughout everything. I’m just going through and playing football. Focusing on what I need to do to help this team win.”

The second-round pick had 41 tackles last season. On the depth chart, he’s currently listed as one of the starting defensive ends.

“A few close guys came up to me, congratulated me and stuff. They’re more relieved for my sake,” Gotsis said. “Outside of this, we’re all human and stuff. There are guys that care about me outside of football. It’s good to have them come say some stuff to me.”

In his first public comments since he declined at the last minute to accept the Indianapolis Colts‘ head coaching position, Josh McDaniels denied Friday that he’d made any deal to succeed Bill Belichick as coach of the New England Patriots.

McDaniels listed several reasons for remaining in New England as Belichick’s offensive coordinator – some personal, some football-related. But he said his job is no different than it was before his near-departure for Indianapolis.

”No Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey , I mean my role is the same,” McDaniels said when asked if he’d received any assurances of becoming the Patriots’ next coach. ”Look, I think if you’re here, you have an opportunity to work with and for some of the best people in our game, maybe some of the best people that have ever done those things in our game. So I just feel like it’s a great opportunity to be here in my role.”

That role will continue to be calling plays and working with quarterback Tom Brady.

”Whatever happens in the future’s going to happen,” he said. ”I’ll be happy with whatever that is.”

McDaniels and the rest of the Patriots’ assistants spoke to reporters at Gillette Stadium on Friday for the first time since New England’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl on Feb. 4.

The Colts thought they had hired McDaniels two days later, tweeting out a welcome and even scheduling a news conference for the next day. Instead, McDaniels, who was coach of the Denver Broncos from 2009-10, changed his mind and returned to the Patriots for his 10th season as offensive coordinator.

”You know there’s a lot that goes into those things and it can be very complicated Authentic Taylor Hall Jersey ,” he said. ”I’ve stated again and again that I definitely want to be a head coach again. At the same time, I love being here.

”This is where my kids are born and raised and we’ve made a pretty special life here and that’s not an easy thing to leave. There’s a lot to consider, and certainly leaving here I don’t take lightly ever. … It was a difficult process and I’m very happy with the decision that we made.”

While McDaniels returns to his old role, linebackers coach Brian Flores’ duties will expand. Although he won’t have the title of defensive coordinator, Flores will call the plays. This isn’t a new situation for Belichick’s staff: Matt Patricia, who left to become coach of the Detroit Lions in January, called plays from 2009-11 before getting the defensive coordinator title in 2012.

The Patriots ranked 29th in yards allowed per game (366) but were fifth in points allowed (18.5) last season.

Flores doesn’t anticipate making a personal stamp on the defense just because he’ll be calling the plays.

”I think there’s a long history of this defense. Bill’s been here for a number of years, so I would say we’re going to continue to play defense like we’ve played for the last 18 seasons since he’s been here,” Flores said. ”My role in that is no different than any other coach on the team. We’re trying to put something together here and do whatever helps us win, you know. You can call it a personal imprint Robert Newhouse Jersey , but it’s a team imprint. … We’re trying to build to be as good as we can be.”

Notes: The Patriots released OL Tony Garcia on Thursday. Garcia, a third-round pick in the 2017 draft out of Troy, spent last season on the reserve/non-football injury list. … New England also signed 2018 fifth-round draft pick LB Ja’Whaun Bentley, sixth-round draft picks LB Christian Sam and WR Braxton Berrios and seventh-round picks QB Danny Etling, DB Keion Crossen and TE Ryan Izzo. Terms of the contracts were not announced. In addition, the Patriots signed nine rookie free agents.
