Jones responded by citing New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell. Bell played under the franchise tag with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2017, but he sat out the entire 2018 campaign after refusing to sign the tender for a second straight year. He became a free agent in the 2019 offseason.

Jones made his first career Pro Bowl last season after amassing 36 tackles, nine sacks, and one forced fumble through 13 appearances. He's led the Chiefs in sacks in each of the last two campaigns.
