What Chiefs DT Chris Jones is excited to do with his $95M contract

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs star Chris Jones has signed a monster five-year deal with $95 million guaranteed to keep him in Kansas City.

This deal makes Jones the highest-paid defensive tackle in NFL history.

It puts an end to the uncertainty about Jones’ future with the Chiefs after he sat out the beginning of the 2023 season, forfeiting more than $3 million during his missed time.

Now he could very likely retire as a Kansas City Chief.

Jones said Tuesday that was the plan the whole time, and he “never had any plans to leave.”

“You know since you guys drafted me, I never planned to play for another organization — better yet, end the year with another organization after coming off a Super Bowl win,” Jones said.

“Deep down, I felt like I was never leaving and (I’m) super appreciative for the Hunt family and the Chiefs organization for making sure I retire a Chief.”

Now that he’s secured his new contract, Jones said he already has a few plans for some of his $95 million.

“Donating a lot, help the inner city kids, the (Boys and Girls) Club,” he said. “Make sure I give back twice as much.”
