Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones is now officially back with the team on a four-year contract extension.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and general manager Brett Veach released statements on the signing via the team’s official website on Wednesday afternoon.

REID: “Chris is a player that is full of positive energy, and that enthusiasm carries throughout our entire locker room. He has the ability to make plays up front for us, which we’ve all seen plenty of times over the last four years. He’s come a long way since we drafted him and the best part is, he still has room to grow and learn. He’s earned this recognition, and I’m happy for him and his family.”

VEACH: “I’d like to thank Chris and his representatives, Jason and Michael Katz for their efforts in getting this deal done. Chris is an elite defensive tackle in our league, and there is no better example of that than his impact in our Super Bowl LIV victory. He’s a passionate player and guy who loves Kansas City. He wanted to be here with us, and it was a priority for us to keep him here. We’re really excited to lock him up for years to come.”

It was a tremendous offseason for the Chiefs.
