Chandler Jones' stale snack cakes point to big things for the Cardinals linebacker.

There are several reasons to think Cardinals pass rusher Chandler Jones will have a monstrous season resembling 2017, when he led the NFL with 17 sacks.

A change in defensive scheme. A new locker-room neighbor. A personal affront. Youth. And stale Debbie Snack Cakes in a kitchen cabinet.

After bulking up to 280 pounds last year to play defensive end in Steve Wilks’ 4-3 scheme, Jones has shed 15 pounds as he moves back to outside linebacker in the 3-4 implemented by new defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.

By the start of the regular season, Jones plans to weigh around 255.
