Giants' Jay Bromley denies attempted rape claims

Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley steadfastly denied Sunday he attempted to rape and assaulted a woman in a Midtown hotel who he met on Instagram as questions mounted about the case.

The 23-year-old football player’s manager, Keko Payne, told the Daily News the shocking and salacious allegations were “absolutely not” true as the pair departed from Secaucus, N.J. for a meeting in Manhattan — though they would not say with whom.

A police source said investigators were trying to determine if Bromley had agreed to pay the 26-year-old woman from Brooklyn for a sex act at the Hyatt Square Hotel Saturday morning — and that he then tried to do more against her wishes.

New York Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley has been accused of attempting to rape a woman he met on Instagram in a Midtown hotel.

Bromley then left the hotel with the woman clinging to the hood of his ride — until she skidded off and he drove away, sources said.

Bromley, 23, leaves his home in Secaucus, N.J. around 2:30 p.m. Sunday for a meeting in Manhattan.

Bromley ignored a reporter’s questions at his home as he placed a duffel bag in the trunk of his black BMW 750.

Payne said they had been “meeting with lawyers all day.”

Sunday evening Bromley returned home and an NYPD spokesman said the investigation was ongoing.

A separate source with knowledge of the investigation said police believe Bromley’s accuser has “significant credibility issues.”

“They don’t think her story makes any sense,” the source said.

An NYPD source went so far as to tell The News Bromley wouldn’t be arrested — though the source subsequently backed off that claim.

Bromley is represented by attorney Alex Spiro, of Ben Brafman’s law firm. Spiro declined to comment on the probe.

Bromley, the 6-foot-3, 306-pound football player, has not yet been charged.

Meanwhile, Doug Hogue, who played alongside Bromley for two seasons at Syracuse University before he was drafted by the Detroit Lions in 2011, told The News he suspected the accuser may have been after Bromley him for his money.

“A lot of times people just try to take advantage of a pro’s position. That comes with friends, family, and definitely strangers,” said Hogue, who last played in the Canadian Football League.

Hogue said Bromley never had any trouble in college.

“It’s actually kind of unbelievable,” Hogue said. “He’s been good guy, a good character guy.”

Bromley’s journey to Big Blue is a remarkable story of overcoming the odds.

The Queens native was a crack baby abandoned at just 3 months old by his troubled parents. He was raised by his aunt Francis Nimmons and her husband.

The 6-foot-3, 306-pound Bromley was drafted in the third round by the Giants in 2014 and has thus far been considered a bust.

Bromley frequently posted on social media how grateful he was to play football professionally, Hogue noted.

“He knows what kind of opportunity he has. He would never jeopardize that,” Hogue said.
