The New England Patriots reportedly have locked up their rookie quarterback.
The Patriots on Tuesday signed Mac Jones to his four-year rookie deal worth $15.6 million, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. There also is a fifth-year option.
Jones was drafted by the Patriots 15th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, and had yet to sign his rookie deal in June when other first-round picks were being signed by their teams.
The quarterback reportedly lived up to expectations New England had for him during a three-day minicamp last month.
