Patriots are Trading QB Mac Jones to Jaguars.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the quarterback Mac Jones of the New England Patriots is being traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars. According to reports, the Patriots will receive a sixth-round draft pick from the Jaguars in return for Jones.

Jones, who grew up in Jacksonville, will have a second chance at life following a difficult NFL debut with New England. The deal is contingent on Jones passing a physical, and it cannot be finalized until Wednesday, when the new NFL season begins. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, four clubs were considering Jones; but, as of Saturday, Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports reported that the Jaguars had the only serious offer.

Following Alabama’s 2020 season-ending national championship triumph, Jones was chosen with

the No. 15 pick in the NFL draft of 2021, but has mostly had difficulty in his professional career.

He was benched multiple times in just the previous season, finishing with 2,120 throwing yards and just 10 touchdown passes against 12 interceptions. With 11 starts under his belt, he recorded a 2-9 record, and the Patriots’ 4-13 season ended with them in last place in the AFC East.

 

With the Patriots, Jones made 42 starts and finished with an 18–24 record. In three seasons, he completed 66.1% of his throws for 8,918 yards, 46 touchdowns, and 36 interceptions. Jones is now returning home, where he will probably act as Trevor Lawrence’s backup.
