Cardinals, Jones Ink Five-Year Deal

Friday morning the Arizona Cardinals officially announced they have re-signed linebacker Chandler Jones to a five-year contract.

The 27-year-old edge rusher was effective in his first season in Arizona registering 11 sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and 15 tackles-for-loss.

Jones, a Pro Bowl alternate in 2016, is one of only three players (Von Miller, Khalil Mack) to have double-digit sacks the past two seasons.

The Cardinals gave Jones the non-exclusive franchise tag back on February 27th.

He was a first-round pick of the New England Patriots back in 2012 and came over in a trade with Pats last off-season.
