[BN] Blitz newsletter: Bills WR Zay Jones arrested after altercation with brother

Bills wide receiver Zay Jones was arrested in Los Angeles on Monday for felony vandalism. But that doesn’t begin to tell the story.

In a wild video obtained by TMZ, Jones is naked while he fights with his brother Cayleb, who plays for the Vikings. TMZ cited witnesses who said Cayleb had to prevent Zay from jumping out of a 30th-story window of the apartment building they were in.

Jones was arrested because he reportedly caused significant damage by breaking windows. There is an extensive amount of blood on the walls in the video. The Bills’ only comment Tuesday was that they were aware of the incident.

What does this mean for Jones? We still don’t have all the facts, but right now he appears to have issues bigger than football. The first concern is for Jones’ mental health. And if the incident was drug-related, he could face a suspension from the NFL. Wide receiver was already an area of need for the Bills, but maybe this increases the need a notch or two.

Bills re-sign Humber: Linebacker Ramon Humber is back with the Bills on a one-year deal. The veteran should provide quality depth and can start if needed. He played 51 percent of defensive snaps last season.

"He certainly looks like a good player,” Bodine said of Ryan Groy, who is also in the mix to replace Eric Wood. “That being said, I’m coming in trying to play, too. We’ll have to figure out how that goes.”

Bill Polian to help form new spring pro football league: Well that's different. Hope Polian doesn't get discouraged by all those aging and unathletic players.

Former Bills safety James Ihedigbo announces retirement: Rex Ryan once said that Ihedigbo tried to play through a broken leg. Real football guy. Best of luck in retirement.
