This week the Detroit Lions sucked the life out of the Kansas City Chiefs fanbase and team, but they are back now. Holdout defensive lineman Chris Jones has agreed to a new one year deal on Monday that could Jones the highest players at his position.

The new contract will replace the final year of his prior deal. He was due to make $19.5 million. He had already surrendered one game check ($1.08 million) and had racked up more than $2 million in non-waivable fines.

The new deal does not add any years to Jones’ contract. So the 29-year-old All-Pro will still be a free agent following the season.

Stay tuned. Regardless of what happens beyond 2023, the Chiefs will have Jones for the rest of the season.

Jones’ new contract is heavily incentive-based, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. So he will have to early a large portion of the available money.

The former star All-Pro has been the Pro Bowl in four consecutive years, so I doubt that will be a major concern.
