Zay Jones will visit Kansas City on Thursday

The The Kansas City Chiefs will reportedly set up a free agent visit with wide receiver Zay Jones Thursday, according to NFL reporter Adam Schefter.

According to Schefter, it is the fourth free agent signing for Jones since he was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars in recent days.

Jones’ visit to the Chiefs comes at an interesting time, given the cloud of uncertainty surrounding Chiefs surrounding Rashee Rice. Rice is already expected to serve a potentially significant suspension due to his arrest and involvement in a multi-vehicle crash in Dallas earlier this season that led to eight misdemeanor charges. Then reports emerged earlier this week that Rice allegedly punched a photographer at a Dallas nightclub.

The Chiefs were already thin enough at the position that the team used their first-round pick on one (Texas WR Xavier Worthy) and grabbed another top target in free agency (Marquise Brown). But with the news that Rice could be in trouble, the Chiefs could use another reliable target given the amount of questions at the position.

According to Schefter, Jones has already spent time with the Tennessee Titans, Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals during his free agent tour. The Jags released Jones after an injury-plagued season in ’23, his second year in Jacksonville.

Jones is a seven-year NFL veteran who started his career with the Buffalo Bills. He has 287 career catches for 3,028 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns since 2017.
