Eagles’ Josh Sills indicted on rape, kidnapping chargers ahead of Super Bowl LVll

NFL teams work hard to avoid distractions ahead of the Super Bowl and the Eagles just got hit with some major news.

According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, undrafted rookie free agent Josh Sills has been indicted on rape and kidnapping charges stemming from a 2019 incident.

Sills was charged in Ohio with raping a woman in December 2019, prosecutors announced on Wednesday.

The incident was immediately reported to the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office, and a “detailed investigation” followed, according to a statement from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, which is heading the investigation.

The case was presented to a grand jury, which recommended the charges.

Sills attended West Virginia and Oklahoma State during his college career and appeared in just one regular season game against the Cardinals on Oct. 9.

The Eagles have yet to publicly comment on the charges, and Sills is due in court on Feb. 16.
