If we’re talking about one free agent who can swing a lot of power by signing with another team. Then Chris Jones has to be near the top of the board. It’s going to be so tough for the Chiefs to repeat without Jones. Ever since he arrived in Kansas City back in 2016 this defense started to improve. And if someone else can lure Jones away when he’s able to sign with any team he wants in March. Then that team would have a pillar of strength on the defensive side of the ball for years to come.
If you go back and watch Jones film he’s so good at working his swim move. It’s amazing how many times he’s able to beat opposing offensive linemen with the same technique. But it really happens because Jones is faster and more physical in the trenches. Then when you factor in the tenacity this guy brings to the table. It sets the tone for the linebackers and secondary behind him. Jones is the type of player you can sign and then build around. It takes a special type of player to be the anchor of an NFL defense but Jones has proven he’s that caliber of player. Some team out there will pay him top dollar and that makes you wonder if the Chiefs will be able to match it? They better or there’s no way they’ll repeat as Super Bowl champions.
