The team is unknown. The timeline is unknown. However, at some point from some NFL franchise, defensive lineman Chris Jones is going to get a mammoth contract extension in the near future. The total sum of that contract, according to NFL.com’s Anthony Holzman-Escareno, is projected to be $101 million over the course of five seasons.
For now, the Kansas City Chiefs are in control of who doles out that amount to Jones. As of this moment, Jones has been given the franchise tag, which would force him to play out this coming season as if it were a one-year deal worth $16.
