Ex-Cowboys LB Allegedly Tried To Hire Hitman To Kill Agent
According to TMZ, former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Robert Jones is at the center of an investigation involving a murder for hire plot.
Jones has been named the primary suspect in a police investigation in Cleveland involving a 47-year-old man Theodore and the agent of the former first round pick.
According to the document, a 47-year-old man named Theodore told police that Jones approached him and tried to hire Theo to take out Jones’ agent.
Theo told cops he refused — and Jones (who’s also 47-years-old) — responded by saying he is a “gangster” and he would make Theodore “disappear.”
Theodore told cops he’s afraid and fears for his personal safety because he believes Jones will make good on his threat.
So far, Jones has NOT been arrested or charged with a crime. We reached out to Jones several times for comment — so far, no word back.
Jones according to TMZ, says “the hit man allegations are complete B.S. — and insists he’s got a great relationship with his agent. Jones issued a statement saying the accuser is a distant relative that “has filed a false police report” … and that he “absolutely denies” all allegations.
Jones says he plans suing Theodore, says the relative has “recently been attempting to extort money” from him and his family.
