Mac Jones, QB (NE)

Backup QB depth added

The Patriots have added Trace McSorley to a QB group that also includes Jones and Bailey Zappe, Zack Cox of reports.

After letting veteran signal-caller Brian Hoyer go last month, the Patriots were in need of depth behind Jones and Zappe. In McSorley, the team adds a No. 3 option who can bring some rushing ability to the team's quarterback mix. As the coming season approaches, Eric Edholm of notes that coach Bill Belichick declined last month to specifically confirm Jones as the team's starter for 2023, a context that has led to some speculation that Zappe could potentially make a run at the job this summer. While it may be that nothing will be handed to Jones and this is a situation to monitor, Mike Reiss of previously relayed via team sources that the Patriots appear committed to seeing if Jones can get back on track under new offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien in the wake of the 2021 first-rounder's uneven 2022 campaign.
