KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The king of sacks in Kansas City football is defensive lineman Chris Jones — and now he's being recognized for that fact.

Jones will be the new face of the McDonald's "Big Mac Sack" promotion.

For several years, whenever the Chiefs record a sack, Big Mac sandwiches at McDonald's become buy one get one free the next day at Kansas City-area restaurants.

Now, Jones will be the face of advertisements for the promotion.

"He represents what we love most about our brand, as a fan himself. We know he will keep us very busy this season," local McDonald's owner, Brian Gremaud, said.

In addition to free sandwiches, local McDonald's owners will donate $100 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City for each sack of the regular season, and $500 for playoff sacks (up to $5,000).
