Jonathan Jones is making an early bid for “Son of the Year” among the Patriots.
The versatile New England defensive back recently surprised his father, Stacey, with his dream car: a 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible 442. Prior to giving his dad his new ride, Jones joked about what would cause him to rescind the gift.
“‘Bout to surprise him with his favorite car. Hope he’s ready,” Jones said in a video shared by the Patriots’ official Twitter account. “If he don’t cry, we’re gonna take it back. That’s the deal. Nah, I hope he’s excited. He’s done too much for me. He deserves this thing and more, so hopefully we make his day today.”
Judging by Stacey’s reaction, it feels safe to say his day was made and then some.
Jones, signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2016, is set to enter his sixth season in Foxboro. The 27-year-old is under contract with New England through the 2022 campaign.
