He will also receive a signing bonus worth $30m, his first two years guaranteed and his 2026 base salary guaranteed in 2025.

Now he will join his teammates in their bid to secure a historic three-peat next season, an achievement which has never been done in NFL history.

Chiefs GM Brett Veach recently opened up on their desire to keep Jones around in Kansas City, saying at this year’s NFL Combine: ‘He’s at the top of the list.’

‘I love Chris,’ Veach added. ‘Tried really hard to get something done and we didn’t. When we got together right after that Detroit game, we had a great talk. Both parties want to be here, so we’ll get to work.

‘He’s certainly a guy we want back and love and want to see him finish his career in Kansas City.’

As well as being a three-time Super Bowl champion, Jones is also a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time All Pro.

The former Mississippi State star has also recorded consecutive double-digit seasons and is renowned for coming up clutch on the biggest occasions.
