Chandler Jones: I made a really stupid mistake

The police offered some more details released about Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones‘ Sunday morning trip to a Foxboro police station on Thursday, but Jones didn’t offer any during a brief appearance in front of the media on Thursday afternoon.

Jones spoke for “about 90 seconds” and said that he understood all of the questions people may have about the incident, which found a shirtless Jones asking for help and telling police that he’d “been told” to go to the station to find it. There have been reports that Jones was using synthetic marijuana and the police report released Thursday says there was a smell of “burnt marijuana” in his home.

Jones said he wouldn’t get into any details while apologizing for whatever did go on a few days ago.

“I made a really stupid mistake,” Jones said, via Michael Whitmer of the Boston Globe.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said at his Thursday press conference that the health and safety of his players was his top priority, but didn’t say whether Jones’ usage would be affected as a result.

    Synthetic weed must be awesome. Just need to chain myself up in the basement while I’m on it.

    There are some media trolls in this town who desperately wanted to push a fictitious “He OD’d on pills at Gronk’s!” angle. Tough day for them.

    Guarantee he still starts. League won’t say a word either.

  4. citizenstrange says: Jan 14, 2016 3:20 PM

    A stupid mistake. He didn’t violently hurt anybody. I vote the only punishment should be time served …. overnight in the hospital. He’s learned his lesson.

  5. hoops737 says: Jan 14, 2016 3:20 PM

    synthetic marijuana is a helluva drug

  6. butwhatabouttheintegrityofthegame says: Jan 14, 2016 3:20 PM

    Can’t wait to see him play Sunday and make all the haters cry like little girls

  7. paulrevereshorse1775 says: Jan 14, 2016 3:24 PM

    nice to hear a play not blame someone/something else for a change.

    hate on, haters!

  8. superpatriotsfan says: Jan 14, 2016 3:24 PM

    See Tom, that’s how you man up and accept your mistakes.

  9. truthfactory says: Jan 14, 2016 3:25 PM

    NFL drug testing is a joke. These can get tested 1 time per year at random between the months of April and August (off-season). Apparently September-March is open season.

    It doesn’t really matter though… the league and the players union only want the appearance of a clean and drug-free sport… hence the current policy.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if over 50% of the players smoke week regularly during the course of the season

    Still remember when Welker pissed Belichick off and got bench ( and lost the game ) even though Jones should pay for his mistake it would be interesting to see what Bill does this time knowing what’s on the line.

  11. factman66 says: Jan 14, 2016 3:26 PM

    If the Patriots had any standards they would suspend him for this game.
    I’m still waiting to find out who told him to go to the police station where the chief works security at Gillette stadium..I have a hunch, but I’ll wait.
    Also, if the Patriots had nothing to do with the boldfaced lies he tod about the incident then why hasn’t he been fired?

  12. seatownballers says: Jan 14, 2016 3:28 PM

    Funny that the head of security for the patriots is the Foxboro police chief. Now it seems like they tried to hide all this. Im not calling anyone a cheat, but the nfl needs to describe their rules for conflict of interest.

    Screw fake pot made in China with side effects.
    Blaze the real thing and remain happy

    DUH.

  14. kd75 says: Jan 14, 2016 3:32 PM

    Insane in the membrane.

  15. xxsweepthelegxx says: Jan 14, 2016 3:32 PM

    Man, Belichick’s presser was awesome.

    “I could just xerox you a copy of the gameplan and you can fax it over to KC, probably save us all a lot of trouble.”

  16. PATRIOTSDYNASTYLIVES says: Jan 14, 2016 3:34 PM

    This wont go without something from Belichick , who benched Wes Welker for the start of a playoff game against the Jets that we ultimately lost…You gonna do the crime….man up and do the time……..somethings coming for you Jones and I hope it was worth it………..

  17. learysdisciples says: Jan 14, 2016 3:35 PM

    It was laced with Coke…stuff makes you crazy!

  18. slugbaitspace says: Jan 14, 2016 3:36 PM

    I’m just patiently waiting for TMZ to inform us who told Jones to go the police station for help.

    Obviously someone who forgot the phone number for 911…

  19. thundersnacker says: Jan 14, 2016 3:36 PM

    He made a mistake. No one got hurt and no one was put at risk other than himself. What else needs to be said? Done. His punishment is, he just lost out on a ton of money for his next contract ( next year).

  20. reprob8 says: Jan 14, 2016 3:37 PM

    ya think??? SMDH

  21. mariorat says: Jan 14, 2016 3:38 PM

    You think?

    Oook… let’s move on…

  22. daysend564 says: Jan 14, 2016 3:40 PM

    Belichick: Health and safety are most important thing to our organization. That said, we need him to play so we won’t be issuing any discipline. We dare the NFL to try to discipline our players.

  23. We'regonnaneedabiggerboat! says: Jan 14, 2016 3:40 PM

    Just how stupid remains to be seen!

  24. ninjapleazee says: Jan 14, 2016 3:43 PM

    I was gonna go to work. But I got high

  25. cowboysallday says: Jan 14, 2016 3:50 PM

    If he wasn’t such an important player he would of been cut instantly let’s be honest

  26. daysend564 says: Jan 14, 2016 3:55 PM

    Spice-gate

  27. godenbroncos says: Jan 14, 2016 3:57 PM

    And that’s why they call it DOPE…

    GoDenBroncos

  28. purplengold says: Jan 14, 2016 3:57 PM

    Smoke real weed instead, spice makes you crazy.

  29. rogerdw66 says: Jan 14, 2016 3:58 PM

    Super Pat, Teddy B, is embarrassed by this and says the coach should sit him. He’s fine with deflated footballs.

  30. oldandgrumpy72 says: Jan 14, 2016 4:11 PM

    What flavor?

  31. jvw1982 says: Jan 14, 2016 4:19 PM

    Funny how people think he made just a mistake, I wonder how many yrs he’s been making the same mistake….this wasn’t a one time thing and I wouldn’t be surprised if other players are involved….

  32. mellimac says: Jan 14, 2016 4:21 PM

    Things get pretty stressful before a big game…bit off more than he could chew.
    Makes one wonder if he clocked Bill, then went home, then realizing his colossal mistake, decided to mellow out. I like that story…
    Then against KC, he puts in a stellar game, with 5 sacks, 1 batted ball, 1 fumble and 6 tackles.

  33. stealthjunk says: Jan 14, 2016 4:43 PM

    You make a “mistake” by having a burrito at work. I’d say OD’ing, running to a police station shirtless, and having the cops cover up for you is a little more than a “mistake.”

  34. farmboss17 says: Jan 14, 2016 5:12 PM

    In addition to the “Days without an arrest” counter, PFT should have a “I done Stupid” counter.

    Well on second thought, maybe not. There is only so much room on a web page.

  35. fanofpft says: Jan 14, 2016 5:49 PM

    He wont have much of a chance to get smoked on the field. As coach Beelzebub should bench him.

  36. cliffordt says: Jan 14, 2016 6:19 PM

    After he blazes down the field he’ll have secondary effects and develop stone hands. (Two puns, not bad, huh?)

  37. burgandy2260 says: Jan 14, 2016 6:57 PM

    I get it. Everyone likes smoking it up. You should have the ability to do that if you choose. The concern is that this grown man learned nothing from the Robert Nkemdiche situation. It was there for everyone to see. Any player who smokes and tries hiding it should’ve took notes. Practically the same outcome. Cmon Man!

  38. kamthechancellor says: Jan 14, 2016 7:41 PM

    Time for a “random” test.

    The Patriots head of security is Mark Briggs holder of the BEM not a podunk police chief

    It’s been like this forever, just like the fire chief handles the fire issues at the stadium. It’s a town bylaw and chances are it’s the same with many other stadiums.

  41. devilsmetsgiants says: Jan 15, 2016 7:32 AM

    Oops. I meant to NOT smoke synthetic marijuana. My mistake.

    Please, give us an example of a team with these “standards” of which you speak.
