Chris Jones Agrees To One-Year Contract With Terrified Kansas City Chiefs

A Super Bowl team champion dropping the home opener does a lot to "motivate" negotiations.

Accordingly . . . Here's today's news blast that signals a bit of panic inside the organization:

Jones will now receive "multiple incentives to earn considerably more money" in the 2023 season.

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach released a statement shortly after the restructured one-year contract was announced.

"Chris is an elite player in this league, and over the last seven years, he's really developed into a leader on our team," Veach said. "He's been instrumental to our success and Super Bowl championship runs and it was a priority for us to keep him in a Chiefs uniform. I'd like to thank Chris and his representation, Michael and Jason Katz, for their desire and patience to get this done. Through this process two things were obvious, Chris wanted to be a Chief, and the Katz brothers worked diligently on his behalf."

Jones, 30, will still be seeking his third long-term deal and will now likely face the franchise tag in the offseason.
