While Patriots quarterback Mac Jones performed well as a rookie, Jones' deep passing was not up to par. Jones wasn't very accurate in throwing downfield and that was a problem for the Patriots.
According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, it is good news that Jones is improving in deep passing.
"We want the ability to do what we want at any time. Jones stated that Jones wanted to offer a bit of variety.
This season will see a change in the Patriots' offense. Josh McDaniels, the Patriots' long-serving offensive coordinator, has left to take over as Raiders head coach. New England is still not clear on who will serve as offensive coordinator. It will be a significant improvement for the offense if Jones can hit passes downfield consistently in 2022, something he was not able to do in 2021.
