NextImg:Raiders releasing Chandler Jones two days after arrest amid bizarre social media posts

The Raiders are cutting ties with Chandler Jones.

The team is releasing the embattled defensive end who was arrested on Thursday night in Las Vegas, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.

Jones was booked into Clark County Detention Center on two charges of violating a domestic violence protective order.

“The Raiders are hopeful that Chandler Jones receives the care that he needs,” the team said in a statement Friday. “He, his family, and all those involved are in our thoughts. As this is now a legal matter, we will not be providing further comment.”

The move comes amid a string of Jones’ bizarre behavior on social media.

On Thursday, the 33-year-old took to social media, crying in a livestream and baselessly implicating Raiders coach Josh McDaniels — the former Patriots offensive coordinator — in the death of Jones’ ex-New England teammate Aaron Hernandez.

Chandler Jones is being released by the Raiders.

Hernandez took his own life in prison on April 19, 2017.

Jones has been inactive for the first two weeks of the season and has been away from the Raiders since their final training camp practice on Aug. 31.

He was placed on the non-football injury/illness list on Sept. 20.
