NFL Notes: Chandler Jones, Kyle Long, Bengals, & Eagles

Chandler Jones

Patriots DE Chandler Jones told reporters on Thursday that “he made a pretty stupid mistake this weekend,” per Andy Hart.

The Foxboro Police Department released details regarding the incident involving Jones from last Sunday.

The black male subject had a muscular build, he was easily over 6-feet tall and he had a noticeably large ‘wing span’ (his arms were extremely long). In a very hurried and haphazard-like fashion, I saw this man randomly scurry through a portion of the parking lot where our police cars are parked. This man suddenly made a ‘b-line’ for our police station’s rear door. Without any warning or provocation, this man got down on his knees, he interlocked his fingers, and he placed his hands tightly against the back of his head. For a quick second or two, this man held this position – it was like this man was trying to surrender (he was literally ‘as stiff as a board’/he was both upright and rigid). This man abruptly released his hands and he started to move slowly toward the ground. Honestly, it appeared as if he was actively worshipping or praying. At times this man would return to an upright position. This same movement/motion was repeated at least twice.

  • Thompson is still hopeful that he can beat timelines for a return.


  • Gary Myers of the New York Daily News reports that Tom Coughlin could have had Eagles’ head-coaching job, but he elected to withdraw his name, due to the core of his coaching staff being under contract with the Giants.
  • According to Myers, Coughlin didn’t want to start over with a new staff and the Giants weren’t interested in releasing his assistants so they could join him in Philadelphia.
