What is Mac Jones’ salary? Here is how much the New England Patriots QB earns
Mac Jones is into the penultimate year of his contract with the New England Patriots, and is the only QB in the squad.
The New England Patriots want to go back to being the undisputed rulers of NFL, dominating with an iron fist as they did at the beginning of the century. The dynasty of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick managed to get six rings from nine during a golden era.
After the exit of the so-called GOAT from the side, the quarter-back position had a huge hole to fill... until the arrival of Mac Jones. The 25-year-old from Jacksonville, selected in the 15th position in the 2021 Draft, the first QB to be drafted after the legendary Drew Bledsoe, is being touted as the leader of the side who only have one player in his position.
Who is Mac Jones?
The title of being the “heir to Tom Brady” may cause nausea and sickness for many, as not everyone has the talent, drive and confidence to follow in such huge footsteps. However, destiny gave Mac Jones the responsibility of taking control of one of the all-time historic franchises of NFL along with the Steelers.
In his college career he was the top player at the University of Alabama, taking them to the NCAA title after beating Ohio State 52-24 with five passes leading to a touchdown: a record for a rising star.
In his first season as a rookie at the elite level of American Football, he was the only novice quarterback to play in the playoffs, managing to find himself a place in the Pro Bowl. His second season was slightly less memorable in a positive sense as his campaign was marred by an ankle injury, giving way for Zappe to play in his place.
Now in his third season of NFL, the Jacksonville native must take a step forward. He is an undisputed starter in the side, way above Will Grier in the ranking, who arrived after being on trial at the Bengals, and is set to play in season three of a four-year deal with the team. But how much money does he earn?
