    Nah, it happens at other positions as well.

    Not big jumps. Donald is at $22.5mil AAV. If Jones went over that he would barely go over. On top of that the Chiefs couldn’t really go much past where they did. Lastly there’s lots of talk about $20 mil AAV being an “unofficial” cap on non-QB salaries.

    Anyway, the point is even borderline Top 10 players can get top money when the best at the position has been paid two years ago. But Jones isn't even that; he's firmly in the Top 5.

    Here's a quick Google search, you can find better breakdowns on YouTube. He was clueless in run defense.
