Jeff Gladney made a name for himself at the biggest stage after putting up impressive performances at the college level. The cornerback who is now a free agent played college football at TCU. Back in 2020, Jeff was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Before young Jeff’s career could really take off, he got involved in a really big controversy. Domestic violence allegations were levied against Gladney last year in August by his girlfriend. According to her, Gladney assaulted her in April after the two got involved in an argument.

However, what comes as a relief for Jeff, he has been found not guilty of assaulting his girlfriend. As reported by TMZ Sports, the jury “unanimously” arrived at the decision that Jeff was indeed not in the wrong. After the whole controversy, Gladney was released by the Vikings.

Moreover, if he would have been found guilty, Gladney would have been sentenced to up to 10 years in prison. He had to sit out during most part of the 2021 because of the case. Earlier, his girlfriend had claimed that Gladney not only choked her but also dragged her by her hair.

Gladney pleaded not guilty and much to his delight, the judgment came in his favor. However, as reported by NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the league authorities are still investigating the claims made against Gladney.
