Antonio Brown has offered his help to Chandler Jones after the Raiders star sparked fears about his mental health with a worrying video.
Jones, who has not played for the Raiders this season, appears to suggest that Las Vegas coach Josh McDaniels somehow staged Aaron Hernandez’s 2017 suicide in a Massachusetts prison.
The tearful video came after a relentless barrage of tweets from Jones, in which he accused Raiders owner Mark Davis of protecting someone who allegedly abused his goddaughter: “I wish I could play with my brothers but Marky Mark has a huge secret that only I know!’
Now Brown — who has had some extremely public issues of his own — has stepped in to help the 33-year-old defensive end.
“I love you bro, I see you king…give them my real number, we’re all coming,” Brown tweeted to Jones on Thursday.

Brown quickly followed up his initial message, saying, “I will close the gap @Raiders @chanjones5… let him play, give him a chance to take his outburst to the next level, just held in pent up aggression… ‘
The ex-Steelers star then posted a photo that appeared to show him and Jones FaceTiming.
In the video discussing his former teammate Hernandez, Jones claimed, “Y’all don’t know what Josh McDaniels really did to Aaron Hernandez. “Did you all think Chico committed suicide in prison? Did you all think my idiot committed suicide in prison?’
“Josh McDaniels had my twin brother Aaron Hernandez killed in an industrial park, not in prison,” Jones later wrote on Twitter.
Hernandez, a tight end for the New England Patriots, hanged himself in 2017 after his arrest and conviction for the murder of Odin Lloyd. McDaniels worked directly with Hernandez during the troubled star’s three-year career from 2010 to 2012.
In an alarming social media post on Monday evening, Jones also said he was given an injection against his will and forced to sleep on the floor.

“My fans and friends were wondering: my first day out, I was taken in against my will by the Las Vegas Fire Department last week,” he wrote.
Jones also said in an earlier social media post that he did not want to play for the Raiders if McDaniels and GM Dave Ziegler were present, and that he was not allowed to enter the team’s facilities.
Brown, meanwhile, was recently accused of threatening players at the now-defunct Albany Empire with a gun, saying “My CTE is acting up” in an August tweet.
The wide receiver’s last NFL game came in January 2022, where he took off his jersey and pads mid-game as he left the field.
Brown also settled a lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault in 2021.
