The 2022 off-season saw some of the craziest deals, trades and player abandonments in recent years. We witnessed Aaron Rodgers’ outrageous $200 million 4-year extension and traded Russell Wilson to Denver in exchange for multiple first-round picks, all in the space of two days.
Arizona Cardinals linebacker Chandler Jones will meet free agency for the first time in his decade-long career. No one in the NFL has raked in more sacks since joining the league in 2012 than Chandler Jones, with 107.5. Jones is currently struggling with deciding which team best suits his talents.
Chandler Jones faces the free agency dilemma for the first time in his 10-year career
The 32-year-old passrusher’s gold may be behind him, but Jones still has plenty of juice in the tank. He’s still able to intimidate quarterbacks with his rushes. Any team would benefit greatly from adding Chandler Jones to their roster. “Honestly, it’s not about the money at all,” Jones told Logan Ryan about the Cardinals’ team website on The NFL Players Podcast.
“Where I’m at in my career, I’ve gotten contracts, I’ve gotten the Super Bowl, but I think the scheme is huge. Or for me to win more championships. I’ll say it again, it’s not about money. I will say that I want to go somewhere that maximizes my talents. There have been times in my career where I would say I caught myself out of position. I take the blame, but at the same time it’s like, ‘Hey, should I have done that?’ I have enough consolation where I am in my career and at this age to say that.
Jones began his career with the New England Patriots, where he won the Super Bowl during his 4-year stint. He was then transferred to the Arizona Cardinals, ending his 6-year stint with them. He’s had a great run with the Cardinals and it’s hard to imagine too many clubs wouldn’t suit his talents and there are few teams that wouldn’t welcome a pass rusher of his pedigree.
Possible landing spots for Chandler Jones include the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens, as well as the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos. Jones is the fifth-ranked free agent in NFL.com’s Top 101 NFL Free Agents of 2022. It will be interesting to see where Jones lands in the 2022 season!
