Kansas City Chiefs: Chris Jones earns a very respectable rating for Madden 22
At just 27-years-old, the Houston, Mississippi native has carved out a great role with Kansas City’s defense thanks in large part to his ability to get into the backfield and track quarterbacks and running backs down.
Entering into his sixth season in the NFL, Jones has 172 combined tackles during the regular season. He’s also racked up 40 tackles for loss, 100 quarterback hits, and 40.5 sacks in the regular season.
Along with all of that, Jones has forced nine fumbles and has picked off a couple of passes during the regular season.
Jones is a star and the Kansas City Chiefs should be grateful to have him. Although he alone doesn’t make the Chiefs a Super Bowl contender, Jones’ stellar and consistent play certainly helps make Kansas City’s title chances even better.
