Chiefs’ Chris Jones Posts Cryptic Tweet Days Ahead of NFL Free Agency

Kansas City Chiefs star undefined had some fun with the internet Thursday when he made a cryptic post on X (formerly Twitter) as NFL free agency nears. Jones, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent should he and the Chiefs not agree to a deal, simply posted a picture of him celebrating Super Bowl LVIII with the caption “KC…….”

During the team’s Super Bowl parade in February, Jones went as far as to declare that he’d be returning to the team, saying, “I need three of those rings, baby, we ain’t done yet. Kansas City, we will be back here next year. And for those who want Chris Jones gone, I ain’t going nowhere, baby!”

His pledge along with Thursday’s social media post all point toward the franchise defender returning to the fold in 2024. 

Jones, 29, has cemented himself as arguably the best defensive tackle in the NFL after yet another first-team All-Pro season where he tallied 10.5 sacks, 30 tackles and 29 quarterback hits for Kansas City’s dominant defense. 

If he were to return to the Chiefs next year, the reigning champions would be a favorite to win it all for the third season in a row. NFL free agency is set to begin Wednesday.
