Arizona Cardinals linebacker Chandler Jones agreed to a five-year, $83 million deal with the team Thursday. He'll receive $16.5 million per season and has $53 million in guarantees. Jones has developed into a top-three pass rusher in the NFL, right behind the likes of Khalil Mack and Von Miller. The Arizona defensive lineman posted 23.5 sacks in the last two years (2015 with Patriots). His presence in the desert long term assures the Cardinals of keeping a ferocious pass rush.
Arizona Cardinals defensive end Chandler Jones, who received the franchise tag, is finalizing a five-year extension with the team, according to sources. Jones is one of the premier pass-rushing threats in the NFL and has 23.5 sacks combined in the last two seasons. Retaining Jones was a priority for Arizona's defense this offseason, and now it looks like he'll stick around long term.
The Arizona Cardinals placed their franchise tag on defensive end Chandler Jones Monday. The two sides now have until July 15 to work out a long-term contract extension. He'll play under the tag, worth roughly $14.129 million this year, if the two sides can't work out a deal. Jones racked up 11 sacks, 21 quarterback hits, 15 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles in 2016. If that doesn't show you how productive he is, we don't know what will. He'll continue to command a high price in IDP leagues in 2017.
