In good standing with coach

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-04-30

Coach Bill Belichick noted Friday that he "absolutely" feels the same way about Jones as he did prior to training camp last season, at which time he complimented the QB's progress, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

When asked if Jones is still the team's No. 1 signal-caller option, Belichick replied, "yeah, I mean, look, Mac's been our quarterback for two years. As I tell the team every year, each player, each coach, we all have to re-establish and prove ourselves every year. That's what this league is. That's for all of us -- '23 is '23. We'll see how '23 goes." Now heading into his third pro campaign since being drafted 15th overall in 2021, Jones is slated to work under new offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien, who noted that the team's incumbent starter has "worked really, really hard this offseason." Following the 2023 NFL Draft, in which the team didn't select a signal-caller, it appears as though Jones will have an opportunity to solidify his standing as the team's top option at the position, with 2022 fourth-rounder Bailey Zappe, Trace McSorley and reported UDFA addition Malik Cunningham also in the team's signal-caller mix.

Backup QB depth added

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-04-13

The Patriots have added Trace McSorley to a QB corps that also includes Jones and Bailey Zappe, Zack Cox of reports.

After letting veteran signal-caller Brian Hoyer go last month, the Patriots were in need of depth behind Jones and Zappe. In McSorley, the team adds a No. 3 option who can bring some rushing ability to the team's quarterback mix. As the coming season approaches, Eric Edholm of notes that coach Bill Belichick declined last month to specifically confirm Jones as the team's starter for 2023, a context that has led to some speculation that Zappe could potentially make a run at the job this summer. While it may be that nothing will be handed to Jones and this is a situation to monitor in the coming months, Mike Reiss of ESPN previously relayed via team sources that the Patriots appear committed to seeing if Jones can get back on track (while playing under new offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien) in the wake of the 2021 first-rounder's uneven 2022 campaign.

Season over after Week 18 loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-08

Jones completed 26 of 40 passes for 243 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's 35-23 loss to the Bills. He added five yards on four rushing attempts.

Jones tossed a pair of game-tying two-yard touchdowns in the first half, finding Jakobi Meyers in the first quarter and DeVante Parker in the second. He was intercepted at Buffalo's two-yard line in the third quarter, then found Parker for a 26-yard touchdown in the fourth before throwing away the Patriots' playoff hopes with interceptions on each of New England's final two drives. New England's Jones-led passing game held back an otherwise talented roster in his second season, but the 2021 first-round pick remains the front-runner for the team's starting quarterback job in 2023. Across 14 starts, Jones posted a 14:11 TD:INT while falling three passing yards shy of 3,000.

Pair of touchdowns in big win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-01

Jones completed 20 of 33 passes for 203 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Patriots' 23-21 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. He also rushed three times for one yard.

Jones was able to put together a clean performance to help the Patriots even their record at 8-8 and remain in contention for a postseason spot. Forced to operate without both DeVante Parker (concussion) and Jonnu Smith (concussion), Jones spread the ball around to six targets overall, with 11 of his 20 completions going to Hunter Henry and Jakobi Meyers. The second-year signal-caller hit Tyquan Thornton (seven yards) and Meyers (one yard) for his two touchdowns, the second capping off a clutch 11-play, 89-yard march that took over five minutes off the clock in the fourth quarter and extended a thin 16-14 lead at the time. Jones heads into a critical Week 18 road matchup against the Bills with back-to-back two-touchdown-pass tallies for the first time all season.
