Raiders reportedly releasing Chandler Jones following arrest for allegedly violating protective order

Sep 30, 2023

The Las Vegas Raiders are releasing defensive end Chandler Jones, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, after he was arrested for allegedly violating a protective order.

Parting ways with Jones comes after a string of incidents involving the 33-year-old. He has been away from the Raiders all season and placed on the non-football illness list earlier in September. On Sept. 5 Jones began posting expletive-laded videos on social media, including one that said he was done playing for the team. After being locked out of the team's facility he made accusations against team owner Mark Davis, general manager Dave Ziegler and head coach Josh McDaniels.

On Thursday night, Jones posted that the Raiders sent a crisis response team to his home after alleging he was taken to a hospital “against my will.”
