In addition to his athletic family background, Jones also worked as a child model and actor, appearing in various commercials.

Jones attended The Bolles School in Jacksonville, Florida, where he played high school football under the guidance of head coach Corky Rogers.

During his junior year in 2015, he led Bolles to the state regional final. As a senior in 2016, Jones continued to excel, leading Bolles to the Florida 4A title by throwing for 1,532 yards and 29 touchdowns.

College Career

Jones initially made a commitment to attend the University of Kentucky, but later decided to accept a scholarship offer from the University of Alabama to join the Crimson Tide.

He joined the university as an early enrollee, but his freshman season in 2017 was spent as a redshirt.

Unfortunately, Jones faced legal trouble when he was charged with driving under the influence (DUI), resulting in a suspension for the subsequent game against LSU.

However, he managed to showcase his skills during the Crimson Tide’s spring game by throwing for 289 yards and two touchdowns, earning him the title of A-Day MVP.

In 2018, Jones made appearances in 14 out of the Crimson Tide’s 15 games, primarily serving as a holder on special teams. He etched his name into the Alabama record books by throwing a 94-yard touchdown pass to Jaylen Waddle, the second-longest in school history, during a victory against Louisiana.

In 2019, Jones took over as the starting quarterback towards the latter part of the season following Tua Tagovailoa’s serious hip injury.

He started in four games for the Crimson Tide, securing wins against Arkansas and Western Carolina but suffering a loss to Auburn in the Iron Bowl.

Despite throwing for 335 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions in the 48–45 defeat, Jones bounced back by leading Alabama to a 35–16 triumph over Michigan in the Citrus Bowl.

By the end of the 2019 season, he had accumulated 1,503 passing yards, 14 touchdowns, and three interceptions in 11 games and four starts.

In his sophomore year, Jones completed his bachelor’s degree in communication studies with a perfect 4.00 GPA. Following the graduation ceremony, he declared his intention to continue his education at Alabama as a graduate student.

Professional Career

One of the premier quarterback prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft, Jones was initially projected to go in the first round.

Despite early predictions placing him as the third overall pick to the San Francisco 49ers, Jones ended up being selected 15th overall by the New England Patriots after the 49ers chose Trey Lance from North Dakota State.

Jones was the fifth quarterback and the fourth Alabama player taken in the first round. Additionally, he became the first quarterback drafted in the first round by the Patriots since Drew Bledsoe in 1993.

Jones signed a four-year rookie contract worth $15.6 million fully guaranteed on July 6, 2021.

Following the preseason, Jones was announced as the Patriots’ starting quarterback for the 2021 season.

He won the starting position over incumbent Cam Newton, who was released during the final roster cuts.

Jones made history as New England’s first rookie quarterback to start a season opener since Bledsoe in 1993.

Jones was substituted by Zappe in Week 4 when he had a subpar showing against the Dallas Cowboys, resulting in a 39.9 rating and three turnovers in a 3-38 crushing defeat.

The following week, Jones had yet another disappointing performance, completing only 12-of-22 passes for 110 yards and two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown, and also lost a fumble.

He was once again replaced by Zappe in the fourth quarter as the team suffered a 34-0 shutout loss against the Saints. In Week 6, facing the Las Vegas Raiders, Jones managed to complete 24 of his 33 passes for 200 yards but threw an interception in a 17-21 loss.

Throughout a three-game losing streak, Jones struggled, throwing five interceptions and failing to score any touchdowns.

However, the Patriots managed to break their losing streak in a remarkable comeback victory against the Bills, with Jones completing 25 of his 30 attempts for 272 yards and two touchdowns in a 25-29 win.

In a Week 8 rematch against the Dolphins, Jones threw for two touchdowns and one interception, completing 19-of-29 passes in a 17-31 loss.

Moving on to Week 9, Jones completed 24 of his 44 passes for 220 yards, one touchdown, and unfortunately, a game-ending interception in a 20-17 defeat against the Washington Commanders.

In the subsequent week, facing the Colts in Frankfurt, Jones faced immense pressure, being sacked five times in the first half. He completed 15-of-20 passes for 170 yards and threw an interception.

Due to his underwhelming performance, Zappe took over for the third time this season during the final drive, resulting in a 10-6 loss. As a consequence, Jones was benched for the remainder of the season in favor of Zappe.

Personal Life

Jones has been romantically involved with Sophie Scott since 2019, whom he encountered during their time at the University of Alabama.

During his college years, Jones earned the moniker “the Joker” due to his tendency to burst into laughter with his mouth wide open and engage in playful activities with his fellow teammates in the locker room.

In August 2021, Jones secured a lucrative endorsement agreement with NoBull, a Boston-headquartered company specializing in the production of athletic footwear and apparel.
