NFL players were quick to respond to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft's alleged scandal in Florida.

Kraft, 77, was among more than a dozen people charged for allegedly paying for sexual acts at Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, according to police. He was charged Friday with two counts of soliciting prostitution, though police told reporters he hasn't been arrested.  A warrant will be issued and his attorneys will be notified.

Police say they have videotape of Kraft — as well as others — paying for a sex act inside an illicit massage parlor on at least two separate occasions.

The Patriots have yet to comment on Kraft's charges, but some players have already issued statements of their own. To some, the news came as a shock while others simply mocked the news.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas retweeted sports commentator Robin Lundberg's thoughts on the alleged encounters.

"I wonder if Meek Mill will visit Robert Kraft in jail," Lundberg's tweet read.

Former NFL player Eric Weems Sr. argued that Kraft should "lose ownership like players lose jobs" after the allegations surfaced.

Geoff Schwartz, who previously played for the Carolina Panthers, also responded to a breaking news tweet about Kraft.

"Oh boy," he wrote.

"And we thought 2018 was crazy…" Darius Butler, a free safety who is now a free agent, tweeted.

Tyvon Branch, who is currently a free agent, responded to Butler: "Just when you think you've seen it all lol."

Branch later clarified his tweet, urging his followers to not "jump to conclusions" and to "wait for the facts" in the case.
