The Kansas City Chiefs, fresh off a Super Bowl victory, have secured their two top stars for the long haul. First, Patrick Mahomes signed the richest contract in sports history on an incredible 10-year extension. Then on Tuesday, the Chiefs beat the deadline to sign franchise-tagged players when they secured star defensive tackle Chris Jones to a huge four-year contract extension.
Chris Jones had hinted at a trade after Chiefs contract impasse
The deal with Jones was a bit unexpected. In fact, he had previously expressed his frustrations on Twitter, hinting his time with the organization was coming to an end.
Many wondered if Jones would consider taking the Le’Veon Bell route by sitting out the 2020 season after one particular tweet.
Needless to say, the Chiefs are breathing a huge sigh of relief now that the drama is behind them and Jones is under contract once more.
Patrick Mahomes’ perfect tweet highlights Chiefs’ potential Super Bowl dynasty run
After Jones’ contract was announced, Mahomes sent out a message on his Twitter account that is a direct shot at all the haters who were predicting doom and gloom following his half-billion contract.
The bottom line here is that Mahomes’ huge deal was actually team-friendly in the first few years and allowed the Chiefs to make the deal with Jones. Furthermore, it sets the team up for a potential Super Bowl dynasty run in the years to come.
With a plethora of young stars on offense and savvy veterans on defense (not to mention the best quarterback in the game), this team has the ingredients to do just that.
