In one of the strangest stories of this year's NFL offseason, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cayleb Jones got into a nude, bloody fight with his brother, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones. Witnesses said Cayleb was restraining Zay from harming himself, and Zay later said he was "grateful to be alive."
Now, Cayleb has landed in a troubling situation again. The 25-year-old was arrested Tuesday at 4:15 p.m. ET, according to KSTP. He faces charges of felony theft and misdemeanor assault, in addition to an allegation of interfering with a 911 call.
Cayleb was already on the hook for a four-game suspension this year for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing policy. The league handed down that suspension in April. Cayleb, 6'3", played on Minnesota's practice squad last season.
"We are aware of the situation involving Cayleb Jones and are in the process of gathering more information," Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said in a statement. "Further comment will be provided at the appropriate time."
Cayleb previously played for the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad. He was released during the 2016 season and joined Minnesota's practice squad during the final week of that season. Cayleb is the son of former NFL linebacker Robert Jones and nephew of former quarterback Jeff Blake.
Cayleb played college ball at Texas (2012) and Arizona (2013-15). In his debut season at Arizona in 2014, he caught 73 passes for 1,019 yards and nine touchdowns. He finished his career at No. 10 on the Wildcats' all-time list for receiving yards. He went undrafted in 2016.
