Patriots waiving Jack Jones was a statement move and the right move

November 13, 2023

The Patriots have waived cornerback Jack Jones. The news comes as no surprise as Jones had a tough off-season after he tried bringing a gun on a plane at Logan Airport. He has also struggled with injuries and inconsistency this season as well.  Jones only played 10 snaps in yesterday’s loss to the Colts and his playing time had decreased in recent weeks.  The Patriots drafted Jones in the fourth…

After all, if not for people supporting them in the early stages of their careers, most pros wouldn’t be where they are today. High school football is really where dreams start to become a…

The Patriots cannot afford to lose Jack Jones to character issues

January 8, 2023

The Patriots announced on Thursday that punter Jake Bailey and cornerback Jack Jones were put on the reserved/suspension list. The two were suspended for different reasons. Bailey was suspended for having a different viewpoint on whether or not he should return to action.

FOXBOROUGH – A fun Zappe Hour was had by all at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. Bailey Zappe’s first career start on throwback day – which also happened to be Bill Belichick’s 400th game as head coach – couldn’t have gone much better as the Patriots cruised to a 29-0 win over the Lions with a true team effort in support of the rookie. The defense completely shut down the high scoring…
