Cardinals give Chandler Jones 5-year, $83 million extension
The Arizona Cardinals signed linebacker Chandler Jones to a five-year, $83 million contract with $53 million guaranteed.
Jones was originally hit with the franchise tag, but the Cardinals didn't take long to hammer out a long-term agreement. He's proven himself as one of the top pass-rushers in the NFL, and now has a contract that pays him like one.
Jones was second on the Cardinals with 11 sacks last season, helping them finish ninth in schedule-adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points allowed per play.
