The Seattle Seahawks released quarterback Trevone Boykin on Tuesday shortly after his girlfriend alleged in a television interview that he physically assaulted her in Texas last week.

The practice squad player was released from the team after WFAA-TV in Dallas posted an interview with Boykin's girlfriend detailing an assault she alleges happened on March 20 in Mansfield Texans Martinas Rankin Jersey , just southwest of Dallas. The woman said she refused to show Boykin a text message and an argument ensued, and that he broke her jaw and tried to strangle her.

Boykin, 24, denied the allegations in a statement released Tuesday to NFL Media. He called the allegations false and said he wasn't involved in a physical fight.

"This woman has lied about me and it has cost me my job," he wrote. "I understand the Seahawks decision to release me. The story that was reported casts a bad light on the organization and on me."

Boykin's agent, Drew Pittman, also told WFAA that the allegations were false. A call to the agent's cellphone by The Associated Press went unanswered Tuesday.

Mansfield police spokesman Sgt. Michael Midkiff said the department is investigating the alleged assault. He said no charges had been filed as of Tuesday and that the investigation was in a very early stage.

The assault allegation is the latest off-field issue for Boykin, who has spent his NFL career with Seattle.

He was arrested in Dallas last year when a vehicle he was a passenger in hit several people on a sidewalk. He fled the scene on foot but was later arrested on misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and possession of marijuana.

In 2015, Boykin was arrested for assaulting a police officer and public intoxication shortly before the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio during his senior season at TCU. Boykin, who was the team's quarterback Authentic Claude Giroux Jersey , was suspended for the bowl game.

Jalen Ramsey spent the past few months working out at his fathers training facility in Nashville.

It was a new routine that caused him to miss Jacksonvilles offseason conditioning program.

The All-Pro cornerback has no regrets, though, about the time away from coaches and teammates.

How do I put this the nicest way possible? Ramsey said Tuesday after the first of a mandatory, three-day minicamp.

I dont think any of my teammates had an issue because they know I was going to come back ready. But at the same time, if they did, I dont think I would care `cause once I get out here I know what I was doing was the right thing for me.

Ramsey worked out in Jacksonville before his first two NFL seasons and fell behind both times because of injuries.

It was an offseason of getting back to the basics for me, kind of doing what got me to the position Im in right now, he said. It was also an offseason for me that I kind of labeled as `no-setback season, just `cause in the previous two years I havent even made it this far.

He had surgery in May 2016 for a torn meniscus in his right knee. He had surgery last June for a sports hernia.

Ramsey still managed to become the best player on a stout defense.

The fifth overall pick in the 2016 draft emerged as one of the top defensive backs in the league last year, locking down No. 1 receivers on a weekly basis. He was voted to the Pro Bowl in his second season and made the more exclusive All-Pro team.

I thought I was good in the past two years Jaire Alexander Color Rush Jersey , and stay tuned, he said.

Ramsey already has matchups circled months before the season, beginning with Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants in the opener and continuing a few weeks later against Kansas Citys Tyreke Hill. The list also includes familiar faces such as former teammate Allen Hurns, Houstons DeAndre Hopkins, Philadelphias Alshon Jeffery, Indianapolis T.Y. Hilton and Pittsburghs Antonio Brown.

Its what I love, but I cant just love it, Ramsey said. Ive got to prepare for it, too, so thats what Ive been doing this whole offseason. Thats what Ill continue to do.

The Jaguars welcomed Ramsey back for minicamp Rashaan Evans Color Rush Jersey , but coach Doug Marrone planned to work him in slowly.

Jalen has worked extremely hard with training with his dad. Hes anxious to go out there and say, `Im ready to go. Lets go, Marrone said. Im more like, `OK, listen, were going to get you in there for a couple and take you out. We just want to see where you are.

The worst thing you can do as a coach is put someone out there that maybe is not ready. Not to say that Jalen is not ready, but we want to make sure that we are doing the right thing for all of the players.

Ramsey had 107 tackles, 31 pass breakups and six interceptions in his first two seasons. Hes earned the respect of opponents as well as teammates, which made his decision to skip Jacksonvilles offseason program an easier one.

I know what I was doing is going to get me prepared as best as anything for the season, he said. Once I put that out on the field Authentic Josh Jackson Jersey , there wont be any issues. I have a good relationship with all my teammates anyways, so if they did they would hit me up. I did it respectful. I hit up people. I was like, `Hey, yo, look, this is my plan for the offseason.

And its not that I felt like I owed anybody an explanation. Its just thats how we vibe. Thats the locker room. I was like, `Yo, I know yall fixin to start it up. Im not coming. Im doing my thing. No worries. They said it right back: `You good, bro.
