Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Robert Jones has been named the primary suspect in a Cleveland police investigation after he allegedly tried to hire a hit man to take out his agent.
According to TMZ Sports, a 47-year-old man named Theodore informed authorities that Jones approached him about killing Jones' agent. When Theodore refused, the 47-year-old Jones responded by saying he is a "gangster" and threatened to make Theodore "disappear."
Naturally, Theodore went straight to the police and told them he fears for his personal well being because he thinks Jones could follow through on his threat.
At this point, Jones has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
Jones was drafted in the first round of the 1992 NFL Draft and went on to become a Pro Bowl linebacker and three-time Super Bowl champion with the Cowboys. Those glory days may seem like another lifetime ago if these allegations are true though. Hiring a hit man to take someone out is serious business.
