Chris Jones News
Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones, whose long-term contract negotiations have stalled with the team, isn't present on Tuesday and is not expected to show up at minicamp, according to sources. For each day Jones misses, he'll be subject to fines. The second-round pick in 2016 had 15.5 sacks last year and has recorded 24 quarterback takedowns in his three seasons with Kansas City and has morphed into one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL in short order.
Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones didn't report for the start of organized team activities this week, according to a source. Jones is in the final year of his deal and is looking for a big long-term extension after posting an incredible 15.5 sacks in his third season in the NFL. The 24-year-old also had 6.5 sacks in 2017 and has emerged as one of the best interior defensive line pass rushers in the league. He will be paid handsomely eventually.
Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones isn't present for the team's offseason workout program that started on April 15, according to multiple sources. The 24-year-old is coming off a breakout season in 2018 in which he had 15.5 sacks (third in the NFL), 29 quarterback hurries (fifth in the league) and 40 total tackles. The second-round pick in 2016 is entering a contract year and would like to sign a long-term extension with KC. He's due to make $1.19 million in base salary this year. It would be a surprise if the Chiefs don't eventually reach an extension with Jones, who will be a strong IDP investment this year.
Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones, who had 15.5 sacks, 40 tackles, two forced fumbles, 19 tackles for loss and an interception returned for a touchdown last year, said he wants to be a Chief for life. He finished third in sacks and was a second-team All-Pro selection. Jones and the Chiefs are discussing a long-term contract extension as he heads into the final season of his rookie deal, but nothing is imminent. With Dee Ford, Justin Houston and Eric Berry moving on this offseason, Jones' involvement as a pass rusher in the future is even more important. He'll continue to be an IDP force in 2019.
The Kansas City Chiefs would like to sign defensive end Chris Jones to a contract extension before he is eligible to become a free agent after the 2020 season. The Chiefs are currently in conversations with Jones on an extension, but nothing is expected to happen anytime soon. For a Chiefs defense that moved on from veterans Dee Ford, Justin Houston and Eric Berry this offseason, Jones is an important building block for KC on that side of the ball. He led the team with 15.5 sacks in 2018 and will once again be in play in IDP leagues in 2019.
