Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. denied the rape allegations against him Tuesday after exiting a Vista, California, court.
According to Jaime Chambers of Fox 5, Winslow commented on the charges he is facing, which include kidnapping, forcible rape, rape of an unconscious person, indecent exposure and trespassing:
"I'm innocent. To the people who know me out there, who know what type of person I am, know my character, my NFL friends and family, just my regular friends and family ... they know who I am. And I'm an innocent guy. I'm an innocent man. ... It's a money grab, and unfortunately that's the society we live in now."
Winslow is alleged to have raped a 54-year-old woman in March and a 58-year-old woman in May.
Another woman told a court earlier in October that Winslow raped her while she was unconscious 15 years ago when she was 17 years old.
A trial date reportedly may be set at Winslow's Nov. 15 arraignment.
Per Chambers, Winslow could face life in prison if he is convicted on all counts against him.
The 35-year-old is the son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow and a one-time Pro Bowler.
After a standout collegiate career at Miami (Fla.), Winslow spent 10 seasons in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and New York Jets.
Winslow last appeared in an NFL game with the Jets in 2013.
