The Kansas City Chiefs will be taking on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVII (58) on February 11th. The highly anticipated matchup will kick off at 6:30pm EST in Las Vegas, NV. The Chiefs, at times, weren’t their dominant selves this year. At one point they sat at 9-6 and many started to write them off as a Super Bowl contender. However, five straight wins later finds Kansas City playing in the biggest game of the year.
For years, there have been a few cornerstone players for the Chiefs who have had a direct impact on their incredible success. One of those players is currently being recruited by a division rival.
One Kansas City Chiefs Star Is Being Recruited By Bitter Rival
Maxx Crosby, a Las Vegas Raider and division rival, wants Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones to know that he would love playing together in Las Vegas in 2024:
“I mean, I would take Chris Jones in a heartbeat,” Crosby told Heavy Sports’ Austin Boyd on February 1. “I know Chris really well. So I mean, there are a lot of guys in free agency, a lot of great defensive tackles.
It would be it would be awesome. I mean, Chris Jones is one of the best in the game, if not the best at what he does. I know he’s a Chief, but at the end of the day, if you want to come to the Raiders, come on down. I’m all for it.”
Jones, who held out forcontract started, received a one-year deal worth up to $25 million from the . Jones will become a free agent this off-season.
It has been no secret for quite some time now that Jones wants to receive a long-term lucrative deal, however, the Chiefs have not been willing to commit to such type of contract just yet.
Earlier in the season, Jones sat down with Michael Smith and expressed how he feels about his future with the Chiefs:
“I never really take it personal, man,” Jones said. “You know, the business is the business aspect of it, man. It’s a tough business. It’s a cutthroat business. And you can’t get too involved with your feelings about it. This could, if we’re speaking truthfully, this could be my last year with the Chiefs.
Am I gonna hate the Kansas City Chiefs for it? Am I gonna down the Chiefs for it? No. I understand the business of it, you know what I mean? So, I can respect the reality of things, you know? So, I never put my feelings in the business part of it.”
“It ain’t,” Jones said. “Because, hypothetically speaking, if this is my last year, I’ve given this organization everything I have. I have exhausted everything, so if this is my last year, I’m super thankful. Hopefully it’s not, but if it is, I’m super grateful for the Chiefs organization and I’ve poured everything into this.”
Would the Kansas City Chiefs’ rival be willing to make Jones the highest paid defensive tackles in NFL history?
