Did the Chiefs make a mistake by releasing Chris Jones?

Over the past few years, the Kansas City Chiefs have been the best team in the league. They have won multiple championships, including back-to-back Super Bowls. Every player on the team has contributed season by season, and a few contributions go unnoticed. One of the prime examples is their defensive player, Chris Jones.

Jones is one of the most underrated players on their team. He has been their main defensive player and is one of the reasons behind their success. Under his defensive presence, the team has performed the best. But from 2024 on, he will not be donning the Chiefs jersey.

His contract with the team hasn’t been renewed. Moreover, he is the hot take on the free agent list. Regarding him getting released by the team, Dan Graziano believes the Chief made a big mistake.

Dan Graziano said:

“Chris Jones is the second-most important player on the team after the quarterback. He has carried the Chiefs team. There is no chance the Chiefs can three-peat without him.”

Undoubtedly, Chris Jones is one of the most important players on the team. He has been one of the best defensive players in the league. Not resigning him might be one of the mistakes that can cost them the Super Bowl three-peat.
