New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has had an eventful rollercoaster as an NFL quarterback since playing as a standout rookie in 2021.

Since then, despite poor coaching in 2022 along with years of lacking help from skill players, Jones has struggled mightily and put his future of being a franchise quarterback in doubt.

During his downspin, Jones had apparently sought help for the offense and his game outside of New England, which did not sit well with several figures within the Patriots organization.

Recently, former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky noted that he texted with the New England quarterback to discuss his play. On Wednesday, Orlovsky added that Jones was the one who initiated the conversation.
