Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones is not on board with owner Clark Hunt’s poor grade in a recent NFLPA player survey.

The players’ union released its annual anonymous survey in February, with Hunt receiving an “F-” from players, the worst grade of any owner in the entire league. The score stemmed from Hunt’s perceived unwillingness to improve team facilities and claims that he did not follow through on a promised locker room renovation after the 2022 season.

Publicly, Jones was not having it. On Wednesday, he said he had “two middle fingers” for those who rated Hunt poorly, citing Hunt’s success in bringing back most of the defensive line from last year’s team.

“They graded my owner an F, I got two middle fingers for them. He’s an A+ in my book,” Jones said. “Brought back Mike Danna, Tershawn Wharton, Mike Pennel. … We were able to bring a lot of guys back that helped us get there last year.”

Jones’ experience may not necessarily be indicative of everyone else’s, but he has certainly been taken care of by the organization. He got a massive new contract this offseason that will make him the centerpiece of the Kansas City defense for years to come.

As for that grade, Hunt blamed a miscommunication with players for the bad grade. He at least knows he can count on Jones’ support if he needs it, regardless of the reason for the bad mark.
