Bills punter Matt Araiza not subject to NFL personal conduct policy amid rape allegations: report

Aug 27, 2022

Buffalo Bills rookie punter Matt Araiza was accused in a lawsuit Thursday of gang-raping a minor while playing football at San Diego State last year, but any decision regarding his future in the league will have to come from the club, not the NFL, reports say.

A lawsuit filed in San Diego Superior Court accused the 2022 sixth-round draft pick and two other of his former Aztecs teammates of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl at a Halloween party on Oct. 17, 2021.

According to the lawsuit, which was first reported by the Los Angeles Times, Araiza is accused of having sex with the teen outside a home and then taking her to a bedroom where she was allegedly raped by him and Zavier Leonard and Nowlin Ewaliko.
