Contract details for Chiefs DT Chris Jones revealed

The Kansas City Chiefs are rejoicing to have All-Pro defensive tackle Chris Jones returning to the team after an agreement was reached on Tuesday. The new one-year deal doesn’t solve the long-term holdup between both parties but does end the lengthy holdout.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the 1-year deal is filled with incentives that helped Jones commit to the season. He revealed the new contract details on social media and the Chiefs’ options moving forward as the Pro Bowler is still set to become a free agent after this season.

“All-Pro Chris Jones will sign a 1-year deal worth up to $25M, sources say.” posted Rapoport, “The base of $19.5M remains the same, but he has the chance to make up the fines (and more) with his incentives package. He’ll be a free agent after the season, but KC also has the tag.

Jones is expected to be back on the field for the Chiefs’ Week 2 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars as the team looks to rebound after dropping the home opener.
