Chris Jones has shed some light on his future with the Kansas City Chiefs following his second Super Bowl win with the team.
The defensive lineman was drafted as a second-rounder by the Chiefs in 2016 and he has become an integral part of the defensive setup. A four-time Pro Bowler, Jones holds the NFL record for the most consecutive games with at least one sack with 11.
It appears fans need not worry about whether the 28-year-old will stick around as he has declared he isn’t going to play for another NFL team.
Having tweeted that he’s grateful this Sunday, a fan asked if a contract extension is in the pipeline. “I’m a Chief for life,” Jones replied. “I will not play for another franchise.”
This will come as quite a relief to fans, as well as the Chiefs organization, though the latter would have already been well aware of where his head is at. Jones has blossomed into one of the best interior DLs in the league since going pro and his contributions have helped KC win two championships in the last four years.
Last season, he made 44 tackles, 15.5 sacks, forced two fumbles, and made one recovery. He sacked Joe Burrow twice during the AFC Championship Game against the Cincinnati Bengals and made three tackles against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl.
The Chiefs are understood to be looking to sign the player to a new deal that would keep him around for the rest of his prime but also allow them cap flexibility.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
