There’s no doubt that Mac Jones has made his name while being in the New England Patriots. Among them stands linebacker Kyle Van Noy, who bids adieu to the New England Patriots after signing with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Last season, he led the Patriots to a 10-7 record, earning a Pro Bowl bid. He ended up throwing for 3,801 yards, 22 touchdown passes, and 13 interceptions while maintaining a 68 completion rate. Despite being knocked off by the Bills in the postseason round, it was a positive stride.
