The Mac Jones era is just setting up. The second-year quarterback had a blast on his rookie season in the NFL. With the new season approaching, he is looking to make substantial improvements in the year-2 of his blossoming career. Moreover, his New England Patriots teammate and WR, Nelson Agholor, has tons of praise for Jones. He also reveals his greatest strength as a QB.

The New England Patriots look to be in safe hands ever since the GOATed era went in the rearview. Mac Jones deserves credit for his performance in his debut season in the league. However, things could be different this time. The Pats lost Josh McDaniels, a few top offensive coaching staff, and two of the best interior defensive players. The mentorship will be contrasting this time, and QB Mac must fight it.

On Tuesday, Nelson Agholor spoke to the mainstream press. He clarifies why Jones has had the level of commitment to be a standout player.

He mentions, “He’s definitely trained his butt off, I can tell you that. I see it every day when he comes in here. He works his butt off. He’s here every day putting the time in. And, obviously, when he throws the football, he throws the football well — really well. I’m impressed with what he does every day and how he works.”

One of Mac Jones’ best qualities, which the wideout noticed, is something that will assist the offense’s momentum rolling forward.
