Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Chandler Jones aired out the team’s dirty laundry on Wednesday night after the team ordered a wellness check for the four-time Pro Bowler.
Jones took to Instagram after the Raiders allegedly sent a member of a crisis response to his home.
He showed a picture of an expired badge belonging to a member of the Vegas CRT and wrote, “RAIDERS SENT HER TO MY PLACE SAID .. YOU NEED TO COME WITH US ‘YOU’RE IN DANGER’,” with a laughing face emoji.
THEY HAD ME OUTSIDE IN MY DRAWS LOL.. NAKED,” Jones later added.
“THAT LADY WAS RUDE. THEN I GOT TO SHOWING HER SOME OF THEM TEXT. AND THEN SHE SWITCHED UP..BUDDY FROM THE RAIDERS TRIED TO GIVE ME THE LOOK..LIKE ‘DON’T SAY ANYTHING’
“NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY PLAYERS TURN TO SOCIAL MEDIA. AT FIRST I FROWNED UPON IT. BUT IT’S OUR ONLY OUTLET. IF I DIDN’T DO THIS, IT WOULD’VE BEEN KEPT UNDER WRAPS..
“ANYBODY INTERVIEW THEM AND ASK WHY I’M NOT ON WITH THE TEAM?
“BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW”
The former New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals star missed a handful of practices late in training camp for an undisclosed reason.
In addition to the above posts, he also posted a screenshot of an alleged text conversation with Raiders coach Josh McDaniels on Aug. 18.
“Y’ALL SEE HOW BUDDY TALK TO ME LIKE I’M A ITEM? LMAO LOOK AT MY TEXT AND LOOK AT HIS,” Jones posted.
“I WON’T SHARE ANYTHING ELSE,” then said, if the Raiders let him play in Sunday’s season opener at the Denver Broncos.
Asked about Jones’ absence during Wednesday’s practice, McDaniels refused to expand on the issue, saying it was a “personal situation…a private matter.”
“We’ve never really gone into those kind of things, so I’m going to steer away from that,” he continued.
Just when it looked like the Raiders might have one normal offseason…
