He had a difficult second year for the New England Patriots, but Mac Jones is ready to bounce back.

Jones is getting things started in organized team activities or OTAs for the Patriots. As a University of Alabama alumnus, the native Floridian is back tossing passes and getting his footwork in order. Bill Belichick returned Bill O’Brien as an offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for Jones. Jones helped O’Brien learn Alabama’s offense during the 2021 NFL Draft process.

New England hopes O’Brien can bring Jones back to his performance from his rookie season under Josh McDaniels.

He set a franchise rookie record for passing yards (3,810) and touchdown passes (22). Jones led the Crimson Tide to an undefeated College Football Playoff National Championship season in 2020. He also set a single-season school record for passing yards (4,500) and passing touchdowns (41). Jones finished as a Consensus All-American and a Heisman finalist. 

He got selected at No. 15 overall in the NFL Draft. Hopefully, Jones have the Patriots in the playoffs in the fall.
