The Kansas City Chiefs are experiencing a lot of enthusiasm right now. For the upcoming campaign, the group has been putting together a solid squad. WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, who has been recently acquired, is now heading to the Arrowhead. The club hasn’t slowed down throughout the offseason. Now, a former Buccaneers’ RB will be in the equation for the upcoming campaign shortly.

The Kansas City Chiefs will get a new offensive firearm in the ammunition. Ronald Jones II, a free agent running back, has recently visited the franchise line-up. Moreover, this signing gives additional versatility alongside Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the running back unit. This also provides Patrick Mahomes with many carriers qualified to make big plays.

The Kansas City Chiefs make it exciting

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero expects the Chiefs to sign former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II to a one-year deal after a successful meeting with the franchise. The Insider also mentions that Jones can earn up to $5 Million in Kansas City.

Although, some sources also state that the quill has touched the paperwork on an agreement between the two parties.

After 4 seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Ronald Jones, 24, enters the fray. Jones’ football career had a shaky start after the Bucs took him in the second-round pick out of USC in the 2018 draft. During Jones’ four seasons in Tampa Bay, he showed a ton of potential and talent, but constancy was an obstacle.

Will Ronald Jones II be effective?

Throughout his 4 year-run in Tampa, Ronald Jones ran 488 attempts for 2,174 yards, with 4.5 yards per carry. He also recorded 76 receptions, 18 rush TDs, and 1 receiving touchdown.

The athlete has a fast driving technique that might suit well behind the Kansas City Chiefs and their revamped offensive line, but his pass risks and the tendency for drops prevented him from garnering the faith of the Buccaneers. However, Jones is only 24 years old, so he has more than enough chances to hone his capabilities and solidify himself as a reliable NFL regular.

The Chiefs have been busy retooling their lineup this offseason, especially after trading three-time All-Pro wide receiver Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins for a boatload of draft choices last week in a bombshell transaction. Since they also signed Smith-Schuster to a one-year agreement, which is like a less-risky deal.

The franchise front might intend to keep a tab on Ronald Jones and other players during this year’s play before committing to a long-term deal, or may also opt for a similar idea during the offseason.
