Chiefs to Franchise Tag Chris Jones

Chris Jones

The Kansas City Chiefs will officially franchise tag defensive tackle Chris Jones. The two sides will attempt to find a deal that works for both sides as soon as possible. The Chiefs also see Jones in their long-term plans.

The NFL’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Thursday morning.

Jones was a big part of the Chiefs’ Super Bowl-winning 2019 campaign. He played in 13 games during the regular season, starting in 12. The defensive tackle recorded nine sacks and 36 combined tackles, eight of which were for a loss of yardage.

He recorded only one tackle in Super Bowl LIV, but he also forced a turnover in the game. Jones was set to become a free agent, until the Chiefs used their only franchise tag on him. They reportedly want time to secure a long-term deal with Jones.

There has been no statement from Jones on the matter at time of writing, but both sides will have to agree on a number for the franchise tag to take hold.
