‘That’s what you want out of your QB’: David Andrews praises Mac Jones’s leadership ability

Mac Jones earned the respect of his veteran Patriots teammates in his rookie season in 2021. Entering year two, he’s now stepping up as one of the leaders of the team, Conr Roche of the Boston Globe reports.

When the Patriots haven’t had practice sessions in Foxborough, Jones has held workout sessions with the receivers and tight ends in various locations all over the country. While the Patriots are in their last break session a few weeks ahead of training camp, Jones continued his private workout sessions this past week. He had a throwing session with receivers Nelson Agholor and Tre Nixon in Carlsbad, California.

Patriots center and captain David Andrews said that it “doesn’t surprise me” that Jones is still holding private workouts this close to the start of training camp.

“The kid’s a hard worker,” Andrews said on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “Zolak and Bertrand” on Friday. “He works his butt off, day in and day out. Sometimes I just try to get him to take a deep breath. But that’s what you want out of your quarterback.

“He works really hard. He’s a tough kid. It’s been fun for me the last year, year and a half, to get to know him. I’ve got a lot of respect for how he does things and how he carries himself.”

“We’re all working to be the best we can be,” Andrews said. “Whether it’s Mac, me, we’re all professional athletes, whoever it is on this football team. We have a job to do. We’re going to go out there and try to do that to the best of our abilities and be the best we can be.

“We’re all here for the same common goal. It starts whenever we report [for training camp], that’ll be day one. We’ll keep working on it and keep improving it. We’ll try to keep getting better throughout the season and not have that kind of lull that we had last season.”
