When Mac Jones makes his Patriots debut in Thursday night’s preseason game against the Washington Football Team, the rookie quarterback will be sporting a new jersey number.
Mac Jones had been wearing No. 50 throughout training camp, which looked a little funky. But he is finally getting a much more normal set of digits for a quarterback.
Going forward, Jones will be donning the No. 10 jersey, which is the same number he wore during his college career at Alabama. Of course, that is also the number that Jimmy Garoppolo sported during his three-and-a-half year run in New England.
Before tonight’s game vs the WFT, Patriots have switched Mac Jones from No. 50 to No. 10.
