Shocking: Patriots and Mac Jones deal saga, what’s really the secret.

The Jets seem determined to move on from Zach Wilson this offseason, but if Sunday morning’s reported Mac Jones trade is any indication, they probably should expect much back in return.

According to multiple reports, the New England Patriots are trading Jones to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a late-round pick, likely a sixth-rounder.

Jones was selected out of Alabama with the 15th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, 13 spots after Wilson was taken by the Jets.

In three seasons, Jones threw for 8,918 yards with 46 touchdowns and 36 interceptions and an 85.8 passer rating. Those numbers might not jump off the page, but Jones’ production easily tops what Wilson has done. Wilson has thrown for 6,293 yards with 23 touchdowns, 25 picks, and a 73.2 passer rating.

Even before the Jones trade, it was hard to see Wilson having much value around the league. And with Aaron Rodgers set to come back from his Achilles injury, Gang Green appears ready to part ways with Wilson, who went 4-7 as a fill-in for Rodgers last season.

Mac Jones Traded – For Almost Nothing

Mac Jones recently said he’d like to “run it back” with the New England Patriots. But instead, he’s being run off to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jones, the former first-round pick and rookie Pro Bowler, is done with the Patriots … and according to ESPN, the once-promising young quarterback might be netting New England only a sixth-round pick. So Jones, despite wanting to earn his spot back in New England under new coach Jerod Mayo, is now going to serve as a backup to Trevor Lawrence in Jacksonville.

Jones was pictured in workout gear at Mayo’s introductory press conference, which, as reported by Greg Bedard, apparently drew ire from his teammates who said he cleaned out his locker at season’s end. … the implication being that Mac was a poser.
