The Kansas City Chiefs have had a roller coaster of an off season that included cuts, signings, a franchise tagging, and some controversy.
The Chiefs defense will have a few new faces in Week 1 of the new season, and given the questions raised surrounding Tyreek Hill's history of alleged abhorrent behavior and the high-profile departure of Kareem Hunt, the offense will have a different pace in 2019 as well.
With all these changes, they would love to keep some old faces. That's in the works, as they are reportedly working on a contract extension for defensive lineman Chris Jones.
Jones had a breakout season during the Chiefs 2018 campaign, registering 15.5 sacks, ending in third for the league lead behind Aaron Donald and JJ Watt. Entering his fourth year in the league, he brings with him 24 career sacks and 100 tackles in 48 total games, including 29 starts.

With the huge elephant in the room the recent inquiry into Tyreek Hill's domestic behavior, the Chiefs are still aiming for a full season free of distractions in 2019. With Patrick Mahomes being the reigning league MVP and Travis Kelce arguably being the best tight end in football, the 2019 Chiefs should remain a top team in the NFL with a shot to win it all.
