One of the players discussed in this week’s Pre-Camp Reads, defensive end Chris Jones, is coming off a strong season in 2017 in which he finished second on the team with 6.5 sacks. We broke down the former second-round pick’s impressive campaign in this week’s Chiefs by the Numbers.

Chiefs by the Numbers: Defensive End Chris Jones’ Strong Sophomore Season

Jones brought down the opposing quarterback 6.5 times in 2017, a 4.5-sack improvement from his rookie season and the second-most on the team behind only linebacker Justin Houston.

It also ranked as the fifth-most among second-year players across the league, and while keeping in mind that every defense uses its players differently, the 310-pound Jones weighs more than each of the players ahead of him on the list. His athletic versatility it truly unique.
