Chiefs Running Back Asks For Release On Social Media

The Kansas City Chiefs recently added to their offence in a huge way, by trading for former first-round pick Kadarius Toney, and while this adds to an already star studded cast in a way that should make everyone on this squad happy, not all the skill position players in KC are satisfied with their role.

This leads to this morning, where former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones took to Twitter to ask his release, following a 1-year deal signed with Kansas City this off-season, but through seven games, Jones is yet to be taken off the practice squad. In four years with the Bucs, Jones accumulated over 2,700 all purpose yards, to go along with 19 Touchdown's, and while he didn't sign a big money deal with expectations to start every week, it's easy to see where the frustration comes from.

After being so productive early in Tampa Bay, before the starting role was handed off to Leonard Fournette, Jones showed that he could be a very effective starter in the NFL, and now, he finds himself a healthy inactive every week. It's unknown right now whether his release will be granted, but this may have been a poor way to go about the situation.
