SportAll-Pro defensive tackle Chris Jones absent from Chiefs minicamp
McDowell: ATV accident, head injury wasn't why Seahawks didn't clear me
Malik McDowell has broken his silence on his saga with the Seahawks that seems to keep on going.
Chris Jones could be nearing a new deal, but he won't be joining his team until he has one.
The star defensive tackle was not with the Chiefs for the start of the team's three-day mandatory minicamp on Tuesday,, citing unidentified sources.
Jones is expected to miss the entire minicamp as discussions around a contract extension have stalled. He will be subject to fines for his absence, the report noted.
, Jones would forfeit a grand total of $88,650 for missing all three days.
Jones, who is in the final season of his rookie deal, has also missed all of the team's voluntary workouts this offseason. While the two sides have started discussions to negotiate a contract extension, a timetable for a deal remains unknown.
Daniel Jones looks like he belongs
Daniel Jones kept the ball on a read-option at Tuesday’s minicamp, sprinting out to the right sideline and through the second level of the Giants’ defense. His teammates began hooting and hollering. “Oh, man,” Sterling Shepard said with a grin. “He pulled that thing and picked the knees up. He looked good.” Jones, the No. 6 overall pick, ran with both the second- and third-team offenses on Tuesday, alternating with backup Alex Tanney. Eli Manning ran exclusively with the ones. Manning and Jones both had up-and-down days, but the rookie looked like he belonged. Another way to say it is he didn’t seem overwhelmed.
“There’s a lot of time to go before the season starts, and he’s certainly a guy that we’ve targeted and would love to get done,” Chiefs general manager Brett Veach told the Star in March. “The conversations have started.
“I wouldn’t say they are heating up at a rapid pace, but you’ve got to start somewhere. We’ve had two to three of these conversations and they’re getting better.”
Jones, 24, was selected out of Mississippi State in the second round of the 2016 draft. He led the Chiefs and finished third in the NFL with 15 1/2 sacks last season.
