New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones is at the center of an offense that appears to be under reconstruction.

With offensive assistants Joe Judge and Matt Patricia taking charge of leadership, Bill Belichick has decided to streamline the offense and simplify it. Tackle Isaiah Wynn went so far as to say they’d dumbed down the offensive terminology.

Jones was asked for his thoughts on those changes.

“The idea for every offense is to have an identity and to be able to play fast and play quicker. And to put stress on the defense is important for any offense,” Jones said June 9 during a videoconference call. “We want to be able to do that consistently and we want to be able to do whatever we want to do at any given time, whether that’s a run, play action or pass short, medium or long. We’re trying to have a little bit of variety and just grow together.”

Jones looked dialed in this offseason with excellent showings in organized team activities and minicamp. He was extremely accurate and began to push the ball downfield with more confidence than he displayed in his rookie season. That’s not the only area where the rookie seems to have grown. He was asked whether he felt like he had command over this new offense.

“Yeah, I think that’s the whole point of the quarterback, right? It’s to lead the guys around you, get them the ball.”
