  • Patriots' Jonathan Jones: Reliable again across 14 starts

    Jones racked up 48 tackles (40 solo) and seven pass breakups across 14 regular-season appearances with the Patriots in 2023. Jones didn't record an interception in 2023, but when on the field he once again was one of New England's most reliable assets in the secondary. Now heading into his age-31 season and the final season of the two-year, $19 million contract he inked with the Patriots last offseason, Jones can safely be considered to play a key role for the 2024 campaign, especially given his ability to contribute at both cornerback and safety.
