Chris Jones Unlikely To Get Extension?

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo believes that Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones deserves a long-term contract extension, but with the team not making an offer at $20 million per season or more, it could be unlikely that he agrees to a deal before the July 15 deadline. Under the franchise tag in 2020, Jones would make around $16 million. The Chiefs apparently don't think he's worth that amount, so there's a lot of work to be done if the two sides don't iron some things out. There's also the situation of extending Super Bowl MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes, so Jones is on the backburner. Jones also threatened a potential holdout on his Twitter account. Most likely, the 25-year-old will play under the tag this year, where he'll be a low-end starting defensive lineman for IDP owners.

Not Much Traction Between Chiefs, Chris Jones

There hasn't been much traction on long-term contract talks between the Kansas City Chiefs and defensive tackle Chris Jones, according to a source. The Chiefs want Jones back long-term, but the coronavirus pandemic has played a big part with teams not know what the salary cap will be next year. Clarity from the league before the July 15 deadline to sign franchise-tagged players would help both sides. The 6-foot-6, 310-pounder has 24.5 sacks for KC in the last two seasons, becoming a dominant defensive tackle for the Chiefs and fantasy owners in IDP formats. He could be looking at around $20 million per season on a new deal. Jones should be considered a weekly starter in IDP formats, with or without a long-term deal.

Not Much Traction For Chris Jones, Chiefs On Contract Front

Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones hasn't had much traction with the team on a contract extension, but both sides still have until July 15 to work something out. The two sides haven't talked since the Chiefs put the franchise tag on Jones. Jones has yet to sign his franchise tender, but he's kept in touch with the Chiefs during the virtual offseason program, according to sources. He has not participated and will not participate in any organized team activities, virtual or otherwise. The market for high-end defensive tackles like Jones is $20-plus-million per season. The 25-year-old former second-round selection in 2016 has racked up 33 sacks in his four seasons with the Chiefs, including 14.5 the last two years. He was a Pro Bowler in 2019 for the first time in his career and should be considered a top-20 defensive lineman in IDP formats.
