Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II, who was convicted of raping a 58-year-old woman, is being retried on eight additional counts, according to TMZ Sports.

The jury that convicted Winslow was deadlocked on those eight additional charges, leading the judge to declare a mistrial. Winslow is accused of raping two additional women and exposing himself to two others.

Per TMZ Sports, the retrial will begin later this year, with jury selection starting in September.

Winslow was charged in San Diego Superior Court in Vista, California.

Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated reported that "Winslow was charged with 12 criminal counts, including seven felonies, stemming from the accusations of five different accusers."

Per the Associated Press (via NBC News), the 35-year-old former tight end was also found guilty of indecent exposure and lewd conduct against two women, but he was found not guilty on one count of a lewd act.

Winslow played nine NFL seasons for the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and New York Jets.
