Chris Jones spoke to the media on Wednesday following mandatory minicamp and responded to Clark Hunt's poor grade in the 2024 NFLPA report card released in February.

Hunt infamously received an "F-" in the player survey, largely due to broken promises and a lack of facility upgrades. Kansas City's owner rebuked the claims, though jokes persisted on social media and around the city regardless.

If you ask Jones, he's got a special message for people who don't think favorably of Hunt.

Chris Jones Responds to Clark Hunts' 'F-' Grade

"They graded my owner an F," said Jones. "I got two middle fingers for them. He's an A+ in my book."

The All-Pro defender then named Mike Danna, Tershawn Wharton, and Mike Pennel as defensive linemen the Chiefs brought back. Kansas City has shown a willingness to spend to maintain continuity with the roster, a plan that's obviously paid dividends.

There's a touch of irony to Jones' comments given players themselves gave Hunt the failing grade, but Jones' massive contract extension gives him every reason to smile. He and the organization are tied together, likely for his entire career, so it's not surprising that Jones wants to support Hunt.

Obviously, Hunt is not perfect, though none of that matters if Kansas City keeps winning. The team can become the first in NFL history to win three straight Super Bowls and that goal consumes the franchise's focus.

The Chiefs have one more day of mandatory minicamp then will break until training camp in late July. Perhaps Hunt will have invested in upgrades, or least some new chairs, once the end of the summer rolls around.
