Chiefs News & Rumors starts with Chris Jones as Kansas City has decided to place him under the franchise tag. This was expected and does not mean that the Chiefs and Jones can’t come to terms on a long-term contract extension. This simply prevents other teams from signing Chris Jones. Jones cap hit under the franchise tag would be $16.3 million. Chiefs Report host Harrison Graham gets you caught up on the latest Chiefs Rumors & News IN THE VIDEO ABOVE AND BELOW.

Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reports that the Chiefs are exploring trade options to shred cap space. Kansas City has just over $13 million in projected salary cap space and that’s before Chris Jones $16.3 million kicks in. Could the Chiefs trade some contracts away to save money? Sammy Watkins & Laurent Duvernay-Tardif are two prime candidates to either get traded or cut for financial purposes. The Chiefs would also like to re-sign either Matt Moore or Chad Henne to be Patrick Mahomes’ backup QB in 2020.

Travis Kelce lit social media on fire when TMZ asked him if he was going to the White House with the Chiefs. He called it a “crazy opportunity” and said he’ll be there. The Chiefs have been busy at the 2020 NFL Combine as they’ve met with several players. Who should Kansas City target in the NFL Draft?
