Sources: Chiefs' cap issues make tag for Chris Jones unlikely

The Chiefs revised contract with defensive tackle Chris Jones did not include a provision that keeps them from using their franchise tag on him, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports citing sources. But the Chiefs' 2024 salary cap situation is expected to prevent them from tagging Jones anyway.

If the Chiefs were to tag Jones after the season, the price tag would be expected to be about $32 million. Kansas City also is projected to be right at the salary cap when the new league year starts in 2024, so it would be incredibly challenging, if not impossible, to clear out the corresponding room to tag Jones, based on a review of their contractual obligations. The Chiefs would have to release or restructure the contracts of too many players to be able to tag Jones.
