Minnesota cornerback A.J. Jefferson was released by the Vikings on Monday, just hours after being arrested on probable cause for domestic assault in Hennepin Co. (Minn.). Jefferson was booked at 6:57 a.m. CT and is currently being held without bail, according to Hennepin Co. online records.
Jefferson appeared in 10 of the Vikings 11 games this season, but played sparingly. The 25-year-old did have an interception though in the Vikings' Week 9 loss to Dallas. The fourth-year defensive back signed with Arizona as an undrafted free agent in 2010. Jefferson spent two seasons with the Cardinals before moving on to Minnesota before the 2012 season.
