Cardinals Restructure LB Chandler Jones’ Contract


According to Adam Schefter, the Cardinals have restructured LB Chandler Jones‘ contract to free up $4 million in cap space this season. 

Schefter adds the team doesn’t believe they will land Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey but Arizona did speak with Jacksonville about a trade. 

Jones, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Patriots back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $8.173 million contract before the Patriots picked up his fifth-year option back in April of 2015.

The Patriots elected to trade Jones to the Cardinals in 2016 for G Jonathan Cooper and a 2016 second-round pick. Arizona franchise-tagged Jones before signing him to a five-year, $82.5 million deal. 

Jones is set to make base salaries of $16.5 million and $16 million in 2019 and 2020. 

In 2019, Jones has appeared in two games for the Cardinals and recorded four tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, one recovery and one pass defense.
