Chris Jones: 'not much traction' on long-term deal with the Chiefs

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.

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.

Chris Jones and Chiefs working on long-term deal

Chris Jones and the Chiefs are working on a long-term deal.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was given the franchise tag in mid-March as both sides look to agree on a long-term contract. “The deadline to get a deal done is July 15. So there’s a lot of time to continue dialogue and to work on something with Chris, but we certainly are going to work to retain him, not just for next year, but for the future," said Chiefs GM Brett Veach. The 25-year-old has been dominant for the Chiefs, recording 24.5 sacks in his last two seasons. The Chiefs will look to lock up their star-pass rusher and have till July 15th to agree on a deal. Jones is a strong fantasy option in IDP league formats.

Chris Jones receiving the franchise tag from Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are placing the franchise tag on defensive tackle Chris Jones today, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the Chiefs having a tight salary cap situation, this move had been expected after the young defensive tackle recorded nine sacks in 13 games last season.

Chris Jones (calf) is officially active for the AFC Championship Game

Chris Jones (calf) is listed as active for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Jones missed last Sunday’s divisional-round win over the Texans. He will provide an instant boost to the Chiefs pass rush. There has been no report of Jones being limited or on a snap count, expect Jones to play in his usual role.

Chris Jones inactive for Divisional Round

Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones (calf) will be inactive for his team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Jones injured his calf during practice on Thursday and missed Friday's session. Jones racked up nine sacks during the regular season but his team will be without his services, leaving a big hole in Kansas City's pass rush. Look for Khalen Saunders to see an increased role on Sunday as a result.
