Monday marked the first day of the New England Patriots mandatory minicamp, which also means it’s the first day of the so-called quarterback battle between former NFL MVP Cam Newton and former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones.

A majority of Patriots fans would likely say there isn’t a quarterback battle. In fact, most fans are confident Newton will be the Week 1 starter and believe Jones will be doomed to roam the sidelines for his entire rookie year. Nothing against the rookie, just typical Bill Belichick protocol.

Numerous reporters present at Monday’s minicamp claimed Jones performed very well and beat Newton in some drills.

One of the factors in today’s practice was the weather, which reportedly included some pretty heavy rain.
