Vikings Release Jefferson

Vikings Release Jefferson

The Minnesota Vikings have released cornerback A.J. Jefferson after he was arrested and jailed on a domestic assault complaint.

The move was made on Monday. According to Hennepin County records, the 25-year-old Jefferson was being held without bail. Formal charges were not expected on Monday.

Jefferson played for the Vikings on Sunday in their tie game at Green Bay. He was acquired last season in a trade with Arizona.

Jefferson became the second Vikings player arrested this month. Wide receiver Jerome Simpson was recently charged with driving while impaired but has kept his spot on the team.
