The Kansas City Chiefs and Pro Bowl defensive tackle Chris Jones have not discussed a long-term deal since he received the franchise tag, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

The two sides have until July 15 to strike an agreement. Otherwise, Jones will be limited to playing on the one-year tender in 2020.

When they tagged their star defender, the Chiefs reportedly had plans to work out a multi-year contract with him. However, Kansas City is short on cap space and needs to budget for a massive extension for quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Jones, who'll turn 26 in July, notched nine sacks in 13 games last year. He had 15.5 sacks in a breakout 2018 campaign.
