Patriots working on trade to send Mac Jones to Jaguars

The New England Patriots’ search for their next franchise quarterback will continue sans Mac Jones.

Multiple reports on Sunday said the AFC East cellar-dweller is working on a deal that would send their first-round pick in 2021 — 15th overall — to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a sixth-rounder.

The deal can not be completed until the NFL’s new year starts on Wednesday.

In Jacksonville, Jones would back up Trevor Lawrence.

It was a turbulent tenure for Jones in New England.

He was 10-7 as a starter in 2021 as a rookie. However, things fell apart, and he went 8-17 after that, frequently being benched and reinserted in the lineup.
