NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The attorney for Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Sammie Hill says a woman's allegation he sexually assaulted her is false and an attempt at extortion.
Attorney Ed Garland issued a statement Wednesday night saying Hill had consensual sex and is cooperating with an investigation by the Atlanta Police Department.
Atlanta police confirmed Monday they were investigating a woman's report that Hill sexually assaulted her after first contacting Houston police on Dec. 5. Atlanta police have released no other information, and The Associated Press does not identify possible victims of sexual crimes.
The 28-year-old Hill is single and played at Stillman. The native of West Blocton, Alabama, is a six-year veteran in the second year of a three-year deal with Tennessee. The 6-foot-4, 328-pound Hill has started 12 games this season.
