Top 3 Landing Spots for Chris Jones in Free Agency


Chris Jones may be silent at certain stages during a game, but one thing is certain—he will always appear at crucial junctures. Jones has accumulated 82 pressures and 15 sacks thus far, bringing his career total of 548 pressures and 83 sacks to 548 as of the AFC Championship Game. A number of teams should be prepared to pay whatever it takes to sign Jones, a game-destroying player who is expected to become a free agent this offseason.


#3. Las Vegas Raiders

Only Adam Butler was able to surpass ten pressure points, so the Raiders need help on the interior. Maxx Crosby, who had 50 and 14.5 sacks, led the team in all other categories. Crosby is a fantastic pass rusher, but just think of what he could accomplish if he had greater interior line support from Chris Jones. In addition to being a fantastic on-field match, Jones would also be a tremendous locker room fit for this Raiders squad, who is looking to start their rebuilding process with Antonio Pierce

#2. Houston Texans

Will Anderson is the cornerstone of the Texans defense at the edge, as seen by his influence and output as a rookie. Houston's defense was excellent, but they need to work on improving the inside of the line because Sheldon Rankins and Maliek Collins aren't the team's best options going forward. The addition of Jones to the defensive line's interior gives them an automatic force to match with Anderson and give opposing offenses fits. In addition, Jones might develop to a completely new level under DeMeco Ryans. 

#1. Kansas City Chiefs

In the Chiefs' instance, they ought to exert every effort to get Jones to sign again. He is the lifeblood of the defense and facilitates the work of others surrounding him on the defensive line. This is a critical re-signing for Kansas City this summer because there isn't much inside depth behind Jones as a backup should he go.
