Former Mississippi State University defensive lineman Chris Jones reached an $85 million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs Tuesday.

Jones’ deal is for the next four years and will include the following, according to ESPN:

  • $37 million due at signing
  • $60 million guaranteed for injury
  • $5 million in incentives, making the value of the contract up to $85 million

Jones, who received the team’s franchise tag this year, was a big part of the Chief’s defense that helped the team win the Super Bowl earlier this year. He currently has 33 sacks, two interceptions and seven forced fumbles.

Jones played for MSU from 2013 to 2016, where he had a breakout season in his junior year. He finished the 2015-2016 season with 44 tackles and 2.5 sacks before entering the 2016 NFL Draft.
