Ronald Jones appears to want out of the Chiefs organization.

On Friday night, the veteran running back shared a very public message expressing his discontent with Kansas City.

"Sure would like a RELEASE right about now," he wrote on Twitter.

The NFL world took to Twitter to react to this news.

"Tampa is always welcome to a reunion, god knows we need you RoJo," one fan wrote.

"I imagine @Chiefs are stashing him in case of injury however I understand his gripe," another added.

"Dude can't even get snaps in a backfield that has a 30 yr old, a 7th round rookie, and CEH probably should be released honestly lol," another said.

Jones signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Chiefs earlier this offseason, but has yet to take the field for a single regular-season game. The former Tampa Bay running back is stuck on the Kansas City depth chart behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Jerick McKinnon and Isaiah Pacheco.

Jones' best NFL season came during the Bucs' Super Bowl campaign. Through 14 regular-season games in 2020, he notched 978 yards and seven rushing touchdowns. In 2021, he collected 428 yards and four touchdowns.

If the Chiefs listen to Jones' request, perhaps the former second-round pick can land in a better situation for the second half of the 2022 season.
