The Las Vegas Raiders have released troubled defensive end Chandler Jones, a day after he was arrested in Las Vegas for violating a protective order.
Jones has endured a turbulent week that included him posting hundreds of times to social media, sharing conspiracy theories and bursting into tears on a live stream.
On Friday, the Raiders released a statement that they were ‘hopeful that Chandler Jones receives the care that he needs. He, his family, and all those involved are in our thoughts.’
Less than 24 hours later, the team have now released him, according to ESPN.
