Entering the final year of his four-year, $80 million contract, Jones wants a lucrative contract extension from the Chiefs. Jones is fined $50,000 for each day he misses training camp, but it will be a drop in the bucket if he ultimately what he wants.
What he wants seems to be a problem, because we now know what it is he is looking for.
Donald signed a three-year, $95 million deal with the Los Angeles Rams soon after they won the Super Bowl. The Chiefs are fresh off winning a second Super Bowl and now Jones wants to get paid.
Williams just signed a four-year, $96 million deal with the New York Jets this offseason.
Most players who have engaged in high-profile contract talks have either reported to camp and participated or staged hold-ins.
Even though the defensive tackle is well-liked and extremely productive, the Chiefs showed what they can do when they shipped off Tyreek Hill and still remained dominant. They aren’t afraid to move on anyone not named Patrick Mahomes, so long as the price is right.
Having just turned 29 years of age, Jones may already be past his prime and the Chiefs could expect a large haul of draft picks if they do trade the defensive star.
The four-time Pro Bowler may have truly played his final game for the team.
