Assessing Mac Jones’ NFL Journey: Insights from Former Teammate Jakobi Meyers

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers, who was Mac Jones’ teammate during the 2021 and 2022 seasons with the New England Patriots, possesses insight into Jones’ challenges during his second year in the NFL.

Meyers expressed his observations, suggesting that the issues Jones faced were somewhat foreseeable based on his past experiences. He noted Jones’ diligent work ethic but indicated a need for better understanding and support from the coaching staff.

Criticism has been directed at former Patriots head coach Bill Belichick for what some perceive as a failure to properly support Jones after his promising rookie season under then-offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Jones experienced a regression while working with different coaching assistants during the 2022 season, leading to multiple instances where Belichick benched him.

With a new head coach, Jerod Mayo, Jones may have an opportunity for a fresh start, but speculation persists about the Patriots possibly seeking to trade him. Meyers expressed his wish that the Patriots had provided more assistance to Jones, emphasizing the importance of coaching and support in enhancing his chances for success.

Mayo has acknowledged shared responsibility for Jones’ downturn in performance, recognizing the need for improvement. Despite sentiments from Meyers and others sympathizing with Jones’ situation, it appears that a separation between Jones and the Patriots is becoming increasingly likely.
