Eagles player charged with rape, kidnapping

A member of the Philadelphia Eagles has been charged with rape and kidnapping.

A grand jury returned an indictment for Joshua Sills, states a press release from the Ohio Attorney General.

The offending lineman, who is 6 feet 6 inches tall, is accused of holding a man against his will and engaging in a sexual act with that man in December 2019.

Officials said the incident was reported immediately, and “the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office conducted a detailed investigation.”

Sills was reportedly issued a summons to appear in court on February 16, which is four days after the Eagles play in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to ESPN, Sills was placed on the NFL commissioner’s exemption list, making him ineligible to attend practices, games, or travel with the team.

The Eagles signed Sills, a rookie, as a 2022 undrafted free agent. He played in one game this season.
