Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones has an exciting message for Chiefs fans to get them in the spirit for the upcoming year.
The AFC West is being considered the toughest division in the NFL, and everyone has a say about which team is the toughest.
The Los Angeles Chargers made a dig at every other AFC West team in their NFL schedule announcement, the Denver Broncos are looking to turn things around with Russell Wilson at quarterback, and Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller agrees that it’s the most difficult division — and that the Raiders won free agency this year.
For the Kansas City Chiefs, there’s four years of consecutive AFC Championship appearances, two Super Bowl appearances and a ring in the 2019 season, so picking the Chiefs as an early favorite for the division probably has the best odds based on the past.
And despite all the quarterbacks crowding the decision, the Chiefs are still the team with the magician, Patrick Mahomes.
Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones is already hyped up for the season, sharing his enthusiasm with Chiefs fans who were absolutely here for it.

As the team heads into June, they will continue playing their way through OTAs and building chemistry in the offseason. Mahomes spent some time before OTAs working with his wide receivers in Texas, which inspired Andy Reid and Eric Bieniemy to host voluntary virtual meetings for the offense.
“Having them with a little time away to do their bonding with themselves, especially with the influx of new players, I think is important,” Reid said according to Fox4KC. “It says a lot about Patrick.”
On the Arrowhead Addicts podcast, hosts Patrick Allen and Matt Verderame recently discussed whether or not the Chiefs were being disrespected with the AFC West winner conversation.
“It’s completely reasonable to look at the Chiefs and say, ‘They’ve got a lot of young players who are gonna play real snaps on defense, they brought in a lot of new pieces on offense, they lost their most dynamic weapon offensively — they’re not gonna be as good,” said Verderame.
“I do think, though, the idea that they’re gonna fall off a cliff and not make the playoffs… if Mahomes is healthy and breathing, they’re making the playoffs,” Verderame continued.
With Mahomes and Jones taking the field, there’s a lot the Chiefs have to look forward to, especially since they are still very much in the race for the AFC West title.
