KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs are bringing back some major pieces from their Super Bowl championship team.

At least, for the time being.

The Chiefs placed the nonexclusive franchise tag on Pro Bowl defensive tackle Chris Jones on Monday, then exercised club options on running back Damien Williams and linebacker Damien Wilson as the NFL’s negotiating period opened with a frenzy ahead of free agency later in the week.
