The decision to bring Jerod Mayo on board may have been a pivotal moment that preserved the future of Mac Jones with the New England Patriots.

When the New England Patriots made the decision to part ways with the Super Bowl-winning head coach Bill Belichick earlier this month and appointed Jerod Mayo as the new head coach, there was speculation that the team might opt for a different quarterback direction in the upcoming season.

Mac Jones, who initially started the 2023 season as the Patriots’ quarterback, faced a demotion to third-string after being replaced by Bailey Zappe in Week 12 against the New York Giants.

Given Jones’ struggles and the Patriots holding the third pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, it appeared likely that the organization would explore alternative quarterback options. Despite this, Mayo has not ruled out the possibility of the former first-round pick remaining with the team in the upcoming season.
