Antonio Brown has offered his help to Chandler Jones after the Raiders star sparked fears for his mental health with a concerning video.
Jones, who has not played for the Raiders this season, appeared to suggest that Las Vegas coach Josh McDaniels somehow staged Aaron Hernandez’s 2017 suicide in a Massachusetts prison.
The tearful video came after a relentless barrage of tweets from Jones, in which he accused Raiders owner Mark Davis of protecting someone who allegedly molested his goddaughter: ‘I wish I could play with my brothers, but marky mark is holding a huge secret that only I know!’
Now Brown – who has had some extremely public issues of his own – has stepped in to help the 33-year-old defensive end.
‘I love you bro coming see you king …… give them my real number we all coming,’ Brown tweeted at Jones Thursday.

Brown soon followed up on his first message, saying ‘I will be mending the gap @Raiders @chanjones5… let him play allow him opportunity to level up his outburst just held in pent up aggression…’
The ex-Steelers star then posted a picture which appeared to show he and Jones FaceTiming.
In the video discussing his former teammate Hernandez, Jones claimed ‘Y’all don’t know what Josh McDaniels really did to Aaron Hernandez. ‘Y’all thought Chico killed himself in jail? Y’all thought my n***** killed himself in jail?’
‘Josh McDaniels had my twin Aaron Hernandez killed at industrial park, not in jail,’ Jones later wrote on Twitter.
Hernandez, a New England Patriots tight end, hanged himself in 2017 following his arrest and conviction for the murder of Odin Lloyd. McDaniels worked directly with Hernandez during the troubled star’s three-year career from 2010 until 2012.
In an alarming social media post Monday night, Jones also said he was injected against his will and forced to sleep on the floor.
Jones claimed that Raiders owner Mark Davis ‘was holding a huge secret that only I know’
‘First day out, if my fans and friends were wondering, I was taken in by the Las Vegas fire department last week against my will,’ he wrote.
Jones also said in a previous social media post that he didn’t want to play for the Raiders if McDaniels and GM Dave Ziegler were in place, and that he was not allowed to enter the team’s facility.
Brown, meanwhile was recently accused of threatening players on the now-defunct Albany Empire with a gun, and said ‘My CTE acting up’ in an August tweet.
The wide receiver’s last NFL game came in January 2022, where he ripped off his jersey and pads mid-game as he exited the field.
Brown also settled a lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault in 2021.
