Draft Scout *Chandler Jones News
03/08/17 - LB Chandler Jones agreed to a five-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, effectively removing the franchise tag assigned Jones on Feb. 27. Jones was acquired from the New England Patriots prior to the 2016 season and was the team's top priority in the offseason, head coach Bruce Arians said during the NFL Scouting Combine last week. Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but Jones is expected to strike it rich. The deal is likely to make Jones one of the highest-paid defensive players in NFL and should be finalized before the official start of free agency at 4 p.m. ET Thursday.
