Chiefs' Chris Jones: Absent from team activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones isn't participating in voluntary offseason workouts, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

Jones is entering the final season of his rookie contract after breaking out for 15.5 sacks in 2018. He spent the past three seasons at defensive end in a 3-4 scheme, but his 310-pound frame should fit just fine at defensive tackle in a 4-3 alignment under new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. The Chiefs reportedly were discussing an extension with Jones back in March, so they should be able to work things out before Week 1. If not, he'll be a prime candidate for the franchise tag next offseason.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Discussing contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones and the Chiefs are discussing a contract extension to keep him in Kansas City before he hits the free agent market in 2020, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Jones is coming off of a monster 2018 season that saw him total 15.5 sacks, nearly double the 8.5 he'd recorded over his two seasons prior. The defensive lineman is entering his age 25 season in 2019 and could be a quality player for the Chiefs for several years if he signs an extension. It appears to be early on in the extension talks and it may be a while before a final deal is in place.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Emerges as force in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones closed out 2018 with 40 tackles (35 solo), 15.5 sacks, an interception, two forced fumbles and his first career touchdown in 2018.

Jones was a solid player in his first two seasons with the Chiefs, but he really proved himself worthy of the second-round selection in 2016 during his third year in the league. Although his streak of 11 straight games with a sack ended in Week 17 against the Raiders, Jones has become a name for which opposing teams need to scheme. Heading into the final year of his rookie contract, Kansas City will almost assuredly make an attempt to lock him into a longer deal this offseason.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Sack streak alive and well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones notched three tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks during Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Seahawks.

Jones has recorded a sack in an outstanding 11 straight games, and he now has a career-high 15.5 on the season. The third-year pro will look to continue his disruptive performance in Week 17 against the Raiders and into the playoffs.

Chiefs' Chris Jones: Continues sack streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones had three tackles (two solo) and 2.5 sacks in Thursday's 29-28 loss to the Chargers.

Jones extended his sack streak to 10 games and ranks second in the NFL with 14 sacks -- trailing only Aaron Donald at 16.5 sacks -- though Jones has now played one more game than his competitors. The 25-year-old will look to extend his stretch of dominance Week 16 against the evasive Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.
