Chris Jones's strike could end up costing him more than $6 million.
Former NFL agent Joel Corry explained in a CBS Sports piece in July 2021 why sitting out during training camp was no longer a bargaining strategy for seasoned NFL players.
Corry, on the other hand, appears to have underestimated Chris Jones and his agents from the Kansas City Chiefs.
The All-Pro defensive tackle is holding out for a multi-year extension to his contract, which expires at the end of this season.
But it's going to cost him a lot of money.
Jones' daily non-reporting fee is still accruing as of Friday, July 21 — his training camp reporting date.
As of Monday, August 14, that's 25 days at $50,000 a day, for a total of $1,250,000.
He was fined $1,083,333 for failing to report for Sunday's preseason game against the New Orleans Saints, which is 1/18 of his $19,500,000 basic pay for 2023.
nd don't forget that when he missed the team's three-day minicamp in June, he was fined $98,753 under the CBA for missing those necessary workouts
