As for what the charges mean, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero provided details. The second-degree criminal tampering charge in Colorado means to tamper with someone’s property “with intent to cause injury, inconvenience, or annoyance.” As for the domestic violence enhancer, that is due to Jeudy’s relationship with the accuser.
The team is aware of Jeudy’s arrest and they are gathering more information, per ESPN senior NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Denver selected Jeudy with the 15th-overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Alabama. He played 16 games in his very first season, but he was limited to 10 games in 2021 due to a high ankle sprain suffered in the team’s Week 1 game against the New York Giants.
Through his two seasons with the Broncos, Jeudy caught 90-of-169 targets for 1,323 yards and three touchdowns.
