Look away Chiefs fans, your situation with your star Defensive Linemen is getting ugly.

Chris Jones took to Twitter this evening to announce that he will sit out the season if a long term deal with the Chiefs is not worked out. Jones was franchise tagged back in March but has yet to sign the tender. The Chiefs have tried to work out a deal a long term deal, and still have until the 15th of July to do so, but it has been reported that the two sides are very far apart. While nothing is official yet, Jones being vocal about his unrest and willingness to sit out has to come as a concern.

The salary cap is not doing the Chiefs any favors either, as the team ranks 32nd in current cap space. They will need to find a way to fix these issues soon, however, as Jones is an integral part of their defensive unit. At just 25 years old, he's already been selected to one Pro Bowl, and has tallied consecutive seasons with over 9 sacks.
