The deadline for players with franchise tags to sign multi-year deals is on Monday Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys 2019
, but those players aren’t the only ones trying to land new contracts before the start of the 2019 season.There are a slew of other players around the league who want new deals before their current ones are up and that group includes Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones.Jones skipped the voluntary portion of the team’s offseason program and also stayed away during their mandatory minicamp in June. There was word in March that the two sides were talking, but Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said in May that he didn’t know if that was the case and there’s been no word that would suggest a deal is imminent.A report from Terez Paylor of Yahoo Sports does nothing to shift that view. Paylor reports that there has been “no change” in Jones’s situation in recent weeks. Paylor also notes that Jones has to report to camp by August 6 in order to accrue the fourth season he needs to hit free agency (or receive a franchise tag) after the 2019 season is over.Jones was a 2016 second-round pick and he’s recorded 24 sacks over his first three seasons Juan Thornhill black jersey

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is coming off of a very successful season, but he isn’t resting on his MVP laurels this offseason.Mahomes said in June that he’s focused on improving his footwork heading into the 2019 season and the Chiefs want him to sharpen up other details of his game as well. Mahomes isn’t just working on his game Juan Thornhill Jersey Mens

The ketchup-loving quarterback said that he’s cleaned up his nutrition to help with that pursuit and he’s seen results already.“I’ve gotten more muscular and [have] less baby fat, I guess you would say Bashaud Breeland Jersey
