It looks like the New England Patriots will be starting rooking quarterback Mac Jones in their season opener, Sept. 12, against Miami.
The Pats have released Cam Newton, the former NFL MVP, who fought COVID issues last year as their starting quarterback.
Jones, was the 15ht overall pick in this past spring’s NFL draft. He’ll be the first rooking to start behind center for New England since Drew Bledsoe.
Mac Jones is QB1 in New England.
