New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he’s observed “dramatic improvement” from quarterback Mac Jones as he enters his second NFL season.
“He’s made tremendous strides,” Belichick said Tuesday morning, the day before the Patriots’ first official practice of training camp.
“He did a great job last year, but he’s starting from a much, much higher point this year from where he started last year. His offseason work has been significant, and I think everyone recognizes how well he prepares and how much further along he was than a year ago.”
Belichick cited Jones’ work ethic and noted that he’s observed dramatic improvement in his “physical work and conditioning, mechanics, footwork, understanding of our offense [and] opponent defenses.”
