The Mac Jones-led New England Patriots are one of the most successful franchises in NFL history. This is largely due to the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick-led dynasty that lasted two decades.
However, since 2020, many interesting things have been brewing in New England. Things such as Bill Belichick rocking full camo, a revolving door of defensive talent, and perhaps most intriguingly, a fixation on signing players called Jones.
We know there's nothing wrong with having more than two players on your team with the same last name. But we have to feel sorry for the Joneses during the Patriots coaching briefs.
Mac Jones is the starting quarterback for the New England Patriots. The second-year pro has previously been tagged as the new Tom Brady by numerous analysts. The Patriots selected him out of the University of Alabama in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Marcus Jones played college football for the University of Houston. Marcus was a threat at defensive end for Houston, and he contributed to a successful NCAA tournament by the team's standards.
Since being drafted, Marcus Jones has played snaps as a defensive back and as a punt returner. His versatility has proved to be an asset for the Patriots, which has seen him appear in ten games for the team.
