Running back Ronald Jones took to social media to apparently ask for his release from the Kansas City Chiefs.

Jones, 25, has been listed as inactive for every regular-season game with the Chiefs since signing a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the team in the offseason.

“Sure would like a RELEASE right about now,” Jones wrote Friday night on Twitter.

The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday.

Jones, 25, has spent the season behind fellow running backs Clyde Edwards-Helaire, rookie Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon on the Chiefs’ depth chart.

Selected by Tampa Bay in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Jones had 488 carries for 2,174 yards and 18 touchdowns in 55 career games with the Buccaneers. He also had 76 catches for 571 yards and a score.
