Chris Jones scares agent with his drunken verbal contract agreement

The biggest offseason question facing the Kansas City Chiefs comes down to the engine that powers the pass rush and whether or not the team will be able to bring back defensive tackle Chris Jones on a long-term deal. Well if you ask Jones at the present moment, the answer is a resounding yes.

That's everything that Chiefs Kingdom wants to hear, of course, following a season in which Jones was once again the likely defensive MVP and far and away the most disruptive player up front for Kansas City. He had 10.5 sacks during the regular season despite missing all of training camp and the first game of the year while holding out and was a one-man wrecking crew in Super Bowl LVIII.

During the Chiefs victory parade on Wednesday, Jones wanted to make sure and reassure those fans who are worried about a future without him that he intends on staying.

As Jones says in the video above, "For those who want Chris Jones gone, I ain't goin' nowhere, baby!"

The Katz brothers are ready to shut this parade down.

While that sounds good in the moment, the truth is that the Chiefs and Jones were saying all the right things about reaching an extension a year ago and yet were somehow unable to come to terms. That's largely due to the advice of Jones's representatives—the Katz brothers—and it didn't take long before they made their voices heard on Wednesday, too.

Yes, Jones had been clearly drinking, as was nearly everyone in the Chiefs parade on Wednesday, but we're assuming the alcohol is only amplifying what's already true here for Jones. He wants to stay and see if he can help the Chiefs achieve a three-peat. The team wants him back as well. It would be silly if this drunken verbal agreement can't turn into something official down the road.
