Included in the original report about the sexual assault allegation made against Nelson Agholor was the mention that two Eagles teammates visited the Cheerleaders Gentlemen’s Club with him. Those two players reportedly include Fletcher Cox and Connor Barwin.

Barwin released a statement regarding his attendance at the club.

"As a result of my name being mentioned in conjunction with this alleged incident, I would like to clarify that I was only present at the establishment for a very short period of time and have no knowledge about anything that happened after I left the establishment. I stopped by there for about a half hour to meet my teammates, and left at around 2:30 pm."

Keep in mind the Agholor incident reportedly took place around 3:00 PM ET.

Barwin's story appears to line up with NJ.com's report.

While there were two Eagles players at the club in addition to Agholor, one left before Agholor and the dancer went into the private room, the person said.

There's currently no indication Barwin and/or Cox were involved in the alleged Agholor incident.

UPDATE: Cox also released a statement via Twitter.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding this developing story.
