Arizona Cardinals defensive end Chandler Jones is pulling off a great move during the holiday season.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jones will donate $20,000 to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for every single sack he has in the final two games of the year.

I love seeing stuff like this. There are plenty of players who donate a couple hundred bucks for every catch or something like that, but this is on a bit of a different level. (RELATED: Here Are The Best Moments From Week 15 Of The NFL Season)

Donating $20,000 per sack is a ton of money, and it’s obviously all going toward a great cause.

I wouldn’t ever cheer for a quarterback to get absolutely mauled, but I really hope Jones gets into the backfield plenty in his final two games this season against the Rams and Seahawks.

In fact, it’d be pretty damn cool if the Jared Goff and Russell Wilson both allowed him to get a couple sacks if the games are blowouts.

After all, it’s for charity and everybody involved would look better off for it.

Major props to Jones, who will make more than $12 million this year, for doing this charity promotional. The NFL could use a few more guys like him.
