Recently, former Alabama star Mac Jones was named the starting quarterback for the New England Patriots, beating the incumbent starter, former NFL MVP Cam Newton.

Head coach Bill Belichick is not one to start a young quarterback, especially a rookie the team just drafted.

New England’s offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels recently spoke to the media about the decision to cut Newton and Start Jones.

He cites consistent improvement and a desire to get better, as well as a high level of play in practices and during the preseason games.

Michael Giardi of NFL Network reported on McDaniels’ comments.

Roll Tide Wire will continue to cover Mac Jones as he prepares to begin his NFL career as the starting quarterback in one of the most storied franchises in the league.
