Confused Jonathan Jones Reacts To Rumor About Patriots Future

Jones is an impending free agent

When it’s all said and done, Patriots cornerback Jonathan Jones could re-sign with New England this offseason.

But it seems the seventh-year defensive back was caught a bit off guard Saturday afternoon when a rumor surfaced that Jones was “likely” to re-sign with the franchise after purchasing a home in the Foxboro area. Jones is an impending free agent after signing a three-year extension in 2019.

The 29-year-old Jones, who has played all seven of his NFL seasons in New England, responded with a pair of tweets depicting his confusion. One of the tweets was a literal scratching-the-head meme.

Jones also added a “no bueno” quote-tweet in response to a Spanish-speaking Patriots fan account, too.

Of course, this is not to say Jones shot down rumors about the potential of re-signing with the Patriots this offseason. Perhaps his response had more to do with the report that he purchased a home rather than his status with the Patriots. That would serve as good news for Patriots fans, too, as Jones has been the team’s best cornerback this season after moving from his previous role in the slot to a lockdown cover man on the outside.

Nevertheless, it’s fair to say Jones’ reaction indicates his decision remains up in the air.
