Nick Wright believes Chris Jones and Chiefs are $9,500,000 apart in contract talks. “It surprised people”

Chris Jones, the Kansas City Chiefs' defensive star, and his ongoing contract negotiations aren't going as planned.

As a result, we are only a few days away from the Chiefs' season opener against the Detroit Lions, and we are unsure whether Jones will play.

With Jones seeking a new contract and the Chiefs reportedly unwilling to give him what he wants, many are wondering what his future holds in Kansas City.

Jones' issue was investigated by FS1's Nick Wright, and it doesn't seem promising.

With only a few days until the start of the season, one would think the Chiefs would do everything in their power to sign Chris Jones to a new contract.

 However, neither party seems close to reaching an agreement.

Given how important Jones is to the Chiefs' defense, his absence will have a negative influence on the defense.

Chris Jones recorded 15.5 sacks last season. George Karlaftis III came in second for the team with 6.0. That is a significant decrease.
