Chandler Jones doubles his donation to Phoenix Children's Hospital

With two games to go in the season, defensive end Chandler Jones said he was going to donate $20,000 for every sack he had the rest of the season to Phoenix Children's Hospital. It was a great gesture, done for a handful of reasons, including in memory of his late sister.

Jones was shut out in the final home game. He managed to get Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson once in the finale in Seattle -- officially -- and therefore, $20,000 would go to the hospital. But Wednesday, Jones decided to double the amount, giving $40,000 to PCH. I'm sure he was thinking that anyway, but perhaps it was a nod to the second sack he actually did make but didn't count -- the takedown of Wilson that caused a fumble that teammate Patrick Peterson returned for a touchdown. Alas, linebacker Haason Reddick was called for defensive holding on the play, and that potential $20,000 tackle was erased.

Jones led the Cardinals with 13 sacks this season. He has 41 sacks since arriving to the Cardinals in 2016, the most of any NFL player in that three-year span.
