The NFL might soon have another Le'Veon Bell situation on its hands.
Standout defensive tackle Chris Jones took to Twitter on Tuesday night in brash fashion as he threatened to hold out if the Kansas City Chiefs don't give him $20 million per year. Though Jones is undoubtedly worth that price of admission, he doesn't seem to realize that he's probably going to be a cap casualty of Patrick Mahomes' inevitable monster extension.
Not only is the Pro Bowler considering taking Bell's now infamous route, but he even noted that he's held discussions about his contract dispute with the New York Jets running back.
Bell is likely the absolute last person that Chiefs Kingdom wants Jones conversing with about his dilemma. Of course, the former Pittsburgh Steeler sat out the entirety of the 2018 season because the franchise wouldn't budge on his contract demands. He ended up losing a significant amount of money in the process.
The Chiefs have come public with their intentions to lock down Jones long term, but his $20 million base value makes things extremely complicated since Mahomes is going to become the highest-paid player in NFL history at some point in the near future.
The 25-year-old stud was franchise-tagged earlier this offseason and will have until July 15 to agree to terms of an extension with Kansas City. His actions on social media suggest that there is a zero percent chance that happens.
