Chris Jones

I wonder if we could trade him for a legit CB?  I love the guy but since they are not paying the man it makes me wonder why...

First, you wouldn't. Pass Rush is even harder to find than pass coverage. Second, you would not get full value.

There is still plenty of time for him to get paid. Got a full season to work on a deal still. I think he put himself last in the queue to get extended when he started talking about skipping practice.

But, I don't think you'd get appropriate value. We'd want compensation for an elite player at a premium position entering the prime of his career. The rest of the NFL would just see us trying to unload a $20M per year debt and would factor the money into the trade compensation.

Chris is seeing KC as being "fair" with compensation. Look at this team. It's superb. Where else would any rostered player rather be? Like Jakuvious said. He's simply late in line but he'll get his just desserts.

Not because of a contract dispute. Unless I'm misremembering things. Jones skipped a mandatory camp and threatened holdout because he wanted a deal. I dont think Hill missed anything except what the team held him out from.

Yeah but which is worse, holding out because you're underpaid for the work you produce, or being on the exempt list because of alleged domestic issues?

Honestly I’m not sure it’s smart to to pay 2 guys 20+  along the same line.

Given that the team is taking the stance that those alleged things did not occur, definitely the former.

Normally I’d agree. But it’s looking like we aren’t going to open the wallets for a CB and Spags D relies on a strong front.

Jones is worth a pay increase. Because we're in a new defense that will help Jones and because he's already a wrecking ball.
