Former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho also posted about the issue on social media. He shared a photo of the woman before and after the claimed altercation.
“Chad Wheeler of the @Seahawks tried to kill his girlfriend because she wouldn’t bow to him. He was even surprised at her survival. If you’re not outraged, you’re part of the problem. @NFL handle this swiftly & decisively.”
One of the photos also reveals a text message allegedly from the woman involved. In the text, the woman claims that Chad Wheeler heartlessly tried to kill her.
“What was most terrifying was how cold he was… He thought I was dead on my bed and continued to eat dinner. When I ran into the bathroom, he said, ‘Wow, you’re still alive,’ while sipping on a smoothie.”
In addition, the Seattle Seahawks released a brief statement about Wheeler on Monday night.
“We are aware of the situation and still gathering information.”
