New York Jets’ Leonard Williams Restrains Teammate Darron Lee in Public (Video)

New York Jets defensive lineman Leonard Williams is spotted restraining teammate Darron Lee in public for speculative reasons.

I mean, at this point, it’s tough to justify anybody still believing in Darron Lee.

From wild insane Twitter rants to disappointing as a rookie to now this, the New York Jets first-rounder isn’t making believers out of anybody.


Check out the video above. It looks as though Leonard Williams was forced to restrain the Jets second-year linebacker in public (video above).

Per Twitter’s @gunnerpunner, who filmed the incident, the man in question was shouting at the woman and starting to “manhandle her.” Though bystanders were reportedly trying to help, the man was “aggressive” and did not stop until Williams appeared—calmly blocking the man before finally picking him up and moving him aside.

The Jets provided an update later on Sunday afternoon:

Update (3:40 p.m. ET): From a Jets spokesperson—“We are aware of the reports, we are taking them seriously and we are looking into the specifics of the situation. We will have no further comment at this time.”

Any way you slice it, it’s bad news. The organization’s players continue to make waves in the news for all the wrong reasons.
