Former NFL star Kellen Winslow Jr. was arrested on Thursday and charged with nine crimes, including rape, kidnapping and burglary, according to the San Diego County District Attorney.

The full list of charges are two counts of kidnapping with intent to commit rape, two counts of forcible rape, one count of forcible sodomy, one count of forcible oral copulation, two counts of residential burglary and one count of indecent exposure.

Winslow Jr. was just arrested last Thursday for suspicion of burglary in California, and it is unclear if the cases are related.

Winslow, the son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow, played 10 seasons with the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and New York Jets. He also spent time with Seattle but never played a game for the Seahawks.

The younger Winslow finished his career with 469 receptions for 5,236 yards and 25 touchdowns. He had a career-best 89 receptions in 2006 and had his only 1,000-yard season (1,106) after making 82 catches for the Browns in 2007.
