Chandler Jones Clowns Russell Wilson After Signing with Raiders
With some notable offseason additions in just the past few days, including Davante Adams, the Las Vegas Raiders put the NFL on notice. This team is ready to compete in the AFC West "arms race" and projects as one of the most intimidating units in football.
Chandler Jones was amongst these offseason splashes. The two-time All-Pro EDGE rusher spoke about his new team and the fiercest division in football on Thursday. Jones took this as an opportunity to play some mind-games and absolutely clown on new Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson.

The four-time Pro Bowler put Wilson on notice with his comments. "He thought he could get away from me, leaving [the NFC West], but I'm right here with him again. So, that's going to be fun, getting after him a little bit," said Jones.
Wilson is no stranger to the elite pass-rushing capabilities of Jones. Over the past six years with the Arizona Cardinals, Jones got after Wilson 14.5 times. That's one sack in all but one of their matchups dating back six years. Talk about mind games.
The AFC West will tout some great football in 2022. Between the Broncos' addition at quarterback, the splashes from the Raiders, the dominant Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs, and a new emphasis on defense for Justin Herbert and the Chargers, it's going to be elite.
Jones tallied 10.5 sacks during his final year in Arizona and Raiders fans can expect more to come in 2022. The Raiders now hold +3800 odds to win Super Bowl 57 on FanDuel Sportsbook.
