There’s no such thing as replacing Tom Brady, but Patriots quarterback Mac Jones is doing everything he can this offseason to get the franchise a sliver of the success it had with the seven-time champion. Even it means seeking out and working with Brady’s throwing coach.
When speaking with the media on Monday, Jones confirmed that he has been working with Tom House this offseason who is a famous throwing coach who has worked with multiple elite quarterbacks including Brady, Justin Herbert and Drew Brees.

Accompanying his efforts to improve his arm, Jones has worked to reshape his body and sleeping habits as he heads into his second year in the league. His current teammate Kendrick Bourne reported that the former Alabama quarterback appears to be in the best shape of his life.
“He’s in the best shape of his life,” receiver Kendrick Bourne said according to NBC Sports Boston. “I think he’s been here all offseason with (strength and conditioning coach) Moses (Cabrera). He looks really good. His stomach is gone, and he looks really good. He’s definitely a pro’s pro now.”
After being selected with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Jones went on to win the starting job during the preseason. He went on to have a solid rookie campaign throwing for 3,801 yards, 22 touchdowns, 13 interceptions while completing 67.6% of his passes.
His efforts at quarterback helped the Patriots achieve a 10-7 record and a return to the playoffs after a one-year absence and now looks to take another step with the team.
