Chris Jones wants to stay with Chiefs for the rest of his career
Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones has no doubt impressed early in his NFL career while remaining in the AFC West for the entirety of his brief professional tenure.
As a result of his time in Kansas City as a member of the Chiefs, Jones already knows that he wants to spend the rest of his NFL playing career as a member of the AFC West franchise.
“I’ve made myself at home, the fans have bought into me, the community has accepted me for who I am and I appreciate that,” Jones recently said, via The Kansas City Star. “I want to spend the rest of my career here, if that’s possible.”
The 24-year-old Jones is still playing under the parameters of his original four-year rookie contract. Already playing three NFL seasons, all as a member of the Chiefs, Jones is currently in line to become an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming 2019 season.
While Kansas City can still pick up his fifth-year option for the 2020 season, the talks between the two sides will likely begin sooner rather than later as the up-and-coming pass rusher has already become a force atop the highest level.
Last season, the upstart Chiefs came within just one game of reaching the Super Bowl while Kansas City was simply unable to overcome the heralded Tom Brady and the eventual Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in the end. Nonetheless, the Chiefs, led by prolific quarterback Patrick Mahomes, will definitely be a formidable force once again in 2019.
