Pro Bowl linebacker Chandler Jones to remain an Arizona Cardinal

Following up on a pledge from earlier this month, the Arizona Cardinals have used the franchise tag to lock up pass rusher Chandler Jones. He earned a little under $8 million last season, so the franchise tag represents almost a double in his salary. Jones remains one of the league's premiere pass-rushers and is nearly certain to be back in Arizona next season.

Wednesday is the deadline for the National Football League teams to apply tags on players set to become free agents, and Arizona's front office had no intention of letting their dynamic pass rusher walk in free agency, especially after acquiring him through a trade last offseason.

Huawei sub-brand Honor has announced a new high-end phablet that could well be a viable Mate 9 alternative for some consumers. For example, it comes with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system on board and features a powerful octa-core processor inside.

Under the terms of the "non-exclusive" franchise tag designation, Arizona can continue to negotiate a long-term contact with Jones through July 15.

This move pays Jones roughly $14.6 million guaranteed this year if the two parties do not come to an agreement on a long-term deal. If he receives an offer sheet from another team, the Cardinals can match it or receive two first-round draft picks as compensation. "We certainly will place the franchise tag on him if we can't get a deal done".

Arizona acquired Jones from the New England Patriots last March in exchange for a second-round pick and offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper.

The Cardinals didn't make it a secret that they weren't going to let Jones go anywhere. His presence alone helped Golden reach a career-high in sacks and defensive tackle Calais Campbell achieve eight sacks. After being traded from the Patriots prior to this past season, Jones went on to post 49 tackles, 11 sacks and four forced fumbles for the Cardinals.
