"You're gonna have to serve somebody..."
Mac Jones told WEEI on Tuesday that he's not surprised he won the Patriots' starting quarterback job and that he plans to stay in touch with Cam Newton.
Jones, a first-round draft pick from the University of Alabama, shared that he learned he was the starter in a team meeting. He described it as a tough day because it came at a time when many of his teammates were being released.
Asked whether he was surprised, Jones said on the radio program: "Not really. Like I always say, I prepare to be the starter. I got a chance to get a lot of reps. Nothing really changes. Just trying to be a good teammate, trying to learn the plays every day, fix what I messed up on and listen to [offensive coordinator] Josh [McDaniels] and all the guys in the quarterback room and take the advice."
Dang, I like this kid.
