Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers, who had an impressive rookie season, is facing challenges both on and off the field.
His woes began with critical errors during the AFC Championship Game, contributing to the team’s loss against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, matters escalated off the field when Flowers became the subject of an investigation by Baltimore County police for an alleged domestic assault.
The incident reportedly occurred last month, with Acton, Massachusetts police also involved due to Flowers’ college ties to Boston College. While Acton police refrained from disclosing details, citing confidentiality laws, Baltimore County police stated that the alleged incident took place in the Owings Mills, Maryland area on Jan. 21, just before the AFC Championship Game.
“The investigation also includes a police department in Massachusetts, which acknowledged a domestic violence incident report related to an incident in Baltimore County last month and involving Flowers.”
Despite the investigation, Flowers has not been charged with any crime. The Baltimore Ravens declined to comment on the matter.
Flowers, selected as the 22nd overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, had an impressive rookie campaign, setting franchise records for catches and receiving yards. Despite his standout performance against the Chiefs, a late-game fumble at the goal line tarnished his otherwise stellar outing.
Reflecting on the play, Flowers expressed his belief that he had crossed the goal line but acknowledged the need to learn from his mistakes.
