New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels shared his thoughts on the recent roster changes made to his team in regards to quarterbacks.

Veteran quarterback Cam Newton was released recently, and now the starting QB position is going to be filled by rookie Mac Jones.

“When you look at the whole body of work since he’s gotten here, he’s been well-prepared each day to come in and do the things we ask our players to do,” McDaniels told NFL Network about Jones. “He’s improved. He’s generally taken care of the football.”

When asked about Newton, the 45-year-old coach gave nothing but praise.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for him as a player, as a human being,” McDaniels told reporters. “He knows how I feel about him. He did everything he could to try and help us win.”

Jones played for the University of Alabama before being selected 15th overall by the Patriots in the 2021 NFL Draft. Considered one of the top quarterback prospects in his class, Jones was predicted to be taken in the first round.

McDaniels was optimistic about Jones’ work ethic and determination to study the game.

“Really feel confident about [Jones’] approach,” McDaniels said. “[He] tries not to make the same mistake twice. He’s really shown a strong aptitude at a young age to put those mistakes behind him.”
