Jones, a second-round draft pick out of Mississippi State, has been the anchor of the Chiefs' defensive line since he was drafted by the Chiefs in 2016. Jones has one of the best bullrushes in all of football, allowing him to rack up 33 sacks since entering the league, tallying 15.5 of those in 2018. This past season, Jones finished with 9 sacks and 8 tackles for loss in 12 games on way to being named to his first pro-bowl.
Jones, just 26 years old, was franchise tagged by the team in March and was set to make $16.1 million under the non-exclusive franchise tag but had yet to sign his tender. The defending Super Bowl Champs just signed quarterback Patrick Mahomes to a 10-year $503 million dollar extension last week, ensuring they will have their offensive and defensive anchors for at least the next 4 years.
