Gareon Conley, of the Oakland Raiders, filed a countersuit against the woman who accused him of sexual assault last year.

The accusations came two days before the 2017 NFL draft. Prior to the accusations, he was widely seen as the best cornerback in the draft and a possible top-10 pick, instead Conley went to the Raiders at No. 24. He also lost a number of endorsements, including one from Nike.

In July, a Cleveland grand jury said it would not file charges against Conley in connection to the woman’s claims.

Conley is seeking at least $25,000 in damages. He says that the woman’s claim was false and “undoubtedly made out of malice,” reports USA Today.
