DT Chris Jones hasn't signed his franchise tender and there hasn't been much "traction" on a long-term extension, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. (Jeremy Fowler on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact:

Jones and the Chiefs have until July 15th to agree on a long-term deal. He's kept in touch with the Chiefs through virtual meetings, but talks of a new contract have stalled. "Not much traction on contract front but both sides have until July 15. Market for high-end DTs is $20-plus-million per year," per Fowler. The 25-year-old has been dominant for the Chiefs, recording 24.5 sacks in his last two seasons. The Chiefs will continue to work with their star defensive tackle towards a long-term extension. Jones is a strong fantasy option in IDP league formats.
