3. Chris Jones
Well, he’s back! It’d be understandable if Jones took some time to ramp up to game speed, but the Chiefs don’t have time after this holdout debacle.
Jacksonville is here and Jones needs to be at his best to maximize the Chiefs’ chances at success. Trevor Lawrence can be turnover-prone, and Jones’ game-wrecking pass-rushing ability was sorrowly missed late against Detroit.
Jones’ contract incentives require a strong season as well. He already missed one week so he’s behind the ball on reaching those incentives. To recoup the money that he lost holding out, Jones needs to be angry and aggressive from the very first snap on Sunday.
Whether fair or not, Chiefs fans will expect an impact from Jones immediately. The fanbase’s patience is already worn thin, so the pressure is on Jones to deliver and remind everyone why he’s one of the best defenders in Chiefs history.
