Chris Jones’ Deal Confirms Travis Kelce Is the Gift That Keeps on Giving

While it’s not quite as exciting as the chase for a Lombardi Trophy, much of the Kansas City Chiefs’ early 2024 offseason has been dominated by salary cap talk. That club had two big-time defensive talents, Chris Jones and L’Jarius Sneed, facing unrestricted free agency, and that seemed to set up a tough choice. If you can only keep one man on the roster long-term, who should it be?

And while both players are technically on the books for 2024 thanks to Sneed’s franchise tag and Jones’ extension, there’s still time for things to change. If KC gets an impressive offer for the defensive back, he could still be traded away.It seemed like general manager Brett Veach would have to choose between Sneed and Jones. Sneed was franchise-tagged, presumably as a security blanket; it keeps him on the books for 2024, but gives both parties time to work out a longer-term deal or a trade. Jones couldn’t be tagged, but that’s now a moot point. He and the club recently agreed to a sizable extension.
