Does Ronald Jones' addition solve the Chiefs' running back problem? | #ChiefsKingdom

In the recent PFF ranking of every RB unit in the NFL, Kansas City Chief's RB unit was rated 30th and potentially the worst in the NFL. This ranking of the Chief's RB unit was expected as their only proven running back under contract, Clyde Edwards-Helaire has earned a first down or touchdown on only 20% of his rushing attempts in his time so far with the Chiefs. He ranks 28th among 32 running backs with at least 250 carries and has 426 total receiving yards.


How does Ronald Jones improve the Chiefs?


Ronald Jones, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back recently signed with the Chiefs in a one-year $1.5 million contract. He won Super Bowl LV with the Bucs in 2020 and will be bringing his championship experience to the Chiefs. Ronald Jones' best season in the league was the 2020 season when he recorded 978 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Jones fell out of favor at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the signing of Leonard Fournette in the 2020 season and subsequently, in the 2021 season, he only started 3 games and had 428 rushing yards and 10 receptions.

Ronald Jones has shown what he can do with the Buccaneers and he should be able to replicate his form with the Chiefs. The Chiefs will probably floor a 1-2-3 punch in the backfield with Ronald Jones, recently resigned Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire. This will give the Chiefs a variety of looks on offence and Patrick Mahomes will sure have various options on plays.
