Bill Belichick isn’t the only one getting more involved with the Patriots’ offence in preparation for the 2022 season. Quarterback Mac Jones is getting plaudits from teammates for his increasingly vocal leadership under centre, fresh off the team’s obligatory minicamp. Jones has taken over New England’s offence, according to No. 1 wide receiver Jakobi Meyers, who told reporters this week that he had taken over the offence in his second NFL season.
Fellow receiver Nelson Agholor was similarly complimentary after minicamp, as Patriots.com noted.”I think he’s a year better,” the veteran said of Jones. “Working hard every day. Does a great job communicating and he’s just working to be the best version of himself. I’m grateful to have him as a quarterback.” Drafted 15th overall in 2021, Jones is looking to build off a generally promising rookie season as the Patriots’ starter. Despite a streaky finish to his debut, the Alabama product made the Pro Bowl as a 17-game starter for New England, throwing 3,802 yards, 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while leading the Pats to a wild-card appearance.
“‘Has he taken command of the offence?’ you ask. According to NESN, Meyers said, “That’s just a capital ‘yes,’ exclamation mark, exclamation mark.” “He’s the real deal,” says the narrator. We’re all trying to catch up to his intellect and vision, so it’s just kind of what he sees. I’m sure (he) and the coaches have done an excellent job of communicating knowledge.
