Patriots quarterback Mac Jones earned a lot of good reviews from his teammates over the course of the team’s offseason program and he’s continuing to work toward a better second season ahead of training camp.

Wide receiver Nelson Agholor posted videos and pictures of a workout with Mac Jones in California to his Instagram account on Wednesday. Wide receiver Tre Nixon joined his teammates for the session.

Agholor is also heading into his second season in New England and he caught 37 passes for 473 yards and three touchdowns last season. Nixon was a seventh-round pick last year and spent all of last season on the practice squad.

Agholor and Nixon will be vying for spots in a group that also includes Kendrick Bourne, Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker, N'Keal Harry, second-round pick Tyquan Thornton, Ty Montgomery, Lil'Jordan Humphrey, Kristian Wilkerson, and Malcolm Perry. Their chances of outlasting the competition will get a boost if this week’s work improves their chemistry with Jones.

  1. I’m expecting Mac to absolutely light it up and be top 5 in the league w/ the offseason hype he’s gotten. First at practice, last to leave, getting in shape, his teammates love him – I mean, we’ve just never heard these things about an NFL QB.

    I wonder if throwing against a pass rush is any different from 7 on 7’s in the middle of summer?

  2. This offense is going to shock people and it will be a top 5 offense. They were 8th last year I believe, with a rookie QB and new bodies everywhere.

    Their OL is stacked, still one of the best, their RBs are stacked, they arguably have the best 1-2 punch at TE in the conference, and no one knows where the ball is going at WR because they are all good.

    It comes down to Mac’s processing after reading the D.

    The troll media, troll fanbases, simply do not know the sport, and are fearful that after Mac outplayed Brady on national tv last October, that he’ll be better after working with BB every day, just like Brady became better with BB’s personal 1:1 attention, making his entire career.

    Yep.

    Enjoy!

  3. NE scored 6th most points in NFL last year with a rookie QB and a host of other new parts. Now a full year later, and with D Parker added to the mix, expect a Top-3 offense this year.

  4. The Colts devoured overrated bust Mac Jones soul last season and he was never the same afterwards. His worst nightmare will happen again this year when the Colts come back for seconds bwaahahaha.

    My mistake. 6th.

    The D was 8th.

    So, improved, more layered offense = improved defense. The D will be faster and play faster, that’s for sure.

    It’s an old BB approach. He did it in 2010 and 2011, but in 2011, Brady was pouting after Moss was dealt (thankfully) the year earlier and Welkie wanted “Andre Johnson money”.

    Yep.

    This time around, BB”s got himself a non-primadonna QB who outplayed Brady last October on national tv.

    Sky’s the limit.

    And, he’s way ahead of running back, Josh Allen after 1 year and his atrocious 1st 2 seasons in the league.

    Mac Jones won’t be running 12 times a game like Lamar Jackson or Joshy Allen.

  6. For once I agree with p6. This offense should be good. OLine is very good, RBroom is very good, although I think they may not get much out of JWhite. Henry is good at TE, and hoping JSmith is better. Watch out for Tre Nixon. IMO KBourne is a huge breakout candidate. All good things have been said about MJones leadership and his drive to be better and win. I just hope the coaching changes don’t set him back.

    Question is, can they stop anybody?

  7. Really, you think the Colts crushed him? I think the Colts choke was way too funny. How do you lose to the Jags with a playoff spot on the line?

  8. “Question is, can they stop anybody?”

    Despite fading down the stretch, they still allowed the 3rd fewest points in the NFL last season. I expect a similar performance this year — young LBs move to the forefront, plus the 4-safety package takes the NFL by storm — sans the playoff meltdown.

    BB has consistently fielded a top-5 defense. No reason to not expect more of the same.

  9. “And, he’s way ahead of running back, Josh Allen after 1 year and his atrocious 1st 2 seasons in the league.”

    People always say he had a better 1st year than Brady, also.

    It’s not a “just add water” thing, though. Jones was always supposed to be the most pro-ready. The way you talk about it, he was better than Allen as a rookie, so naturally, he’ll be a better QB than Allen in the long run, too.

    Now, that would be a neat trick, as they say.

  10. I feel bad for Jones.
    Jones is soooooo over-hyped by the chowdah faithful.. you know MJ10..Goat 2.0…
    It’s going to be simply painful to watch Jones try to match those expectations while getting crushed behind that line
    The AFC is no joke this year….
    6-11.

    Once again you make stuff up. Moss was gone after the 2009 season. So Brady played without him in 2010 and still led the league in TDs and Passer Rating.

    6-11 ? Yeah we heard that last season too.

    And I’m not sure why people think the O line isn’t good or will be bad.
    Same tackles same center , guards are a dime a dozen and probably the easiest to replace on the O line.

  13. FYI: Randy Moss began the 2010 season with NE, started several games and was traded mid-season.

    And he still fails to acknowledge the putrid performance BB’s defense gave against Buffalo in the humiliating playoff loss…

    Laughable.

    BB IS the add water thing.

    This isn’t Dick Jauron, Doug Marrone, Rex Ryan, or any other horrendous non-head coach your franchise

    It’s highly comical, sick and sad to me, and I am sure everyone else who reads your crap, to see that you actually think BB’s knowledge, brilliant teaching, experience and FACTUAL success as a GM and Coach with NE for over 20 years, and another 20+ plus before that.

    BB IS the “add water”.

    He’s turned over over a dozen rosters in over 20 years in NE, 2 of them on the plus side with QBs not named Tommy.

  16. Hey Mac: When you throw the ball to Agholor, you’re going to find that a lot of passes that you think should be caught somehow end up on the ground. Don’t be alarmed, this is normal.

  17. I can’t predict the future but I know Mac Jones has so far proven his doubters wrong. In college, he beat out a 5-star recruit, Bryce Young and went on to have a record season and won a national championship. In the NFL draft, he was the 5th QB selected and went on to have the best rookie season for a QB. So I expect Mac Jones to take that next step this season.

  18. FYI: Randy Moss began the 2010 season with NE, started several games and was traded mid-season.
    —————-

    Bad on me! He did play 4 games that season.

  19. Mac works out with receivers and somehow reporting this is hype?

    That’s not hype – hype is a team talking about saying everyone has huge expectations for them, or talking about how they think they have best roster in the league and how they will cake walk the rest of the division …. That’s hype

    ———-

    He hasn’t won a single postseason game with the Patriots that did not include a QB named Tommy

    Tommy was the Water

  21. Mac Jones – uh…10th best QB in the AFC. Jones – a common name, a very average QB.

  22. BB needs to prove he can win in the playoffs with a QB who plays the game right and doesn’t cheat like Tommy did and no doubt is still doing. That’s important to Bill’s legacy.

  23. BB is a great coach, but he’s not some QB whisperer who can make anyone he drafts elite.

    He’ll get the best out of Jones, but I doubt it will be enough to compete in the now QB-rich AFC. As of today, I’d rank Jones 8th among the AFC QB’s.

    But, offseason talk is just that. We’ll see how it goes when September rolls around. I’m more worried about Miami in the division as of today.

  24. It will be super funny when reading the comments of this thread in six months.

  25. Weaklings like Brady never belonged in the NFL. Peyton Manning is a REAL man’s QB. 🙂

    Huh? Jones went on to make the playoffs his rookie year while the Colts deteriorated into a team that couldn’t even beat the Jags by the end of the year. Are you sure you want those seconds?

  27. Who is the Patriot’s OC? I think that is the fundamental questions. Sure, the Patriots have lots of good ingredients; who is the chef who is going to make the offense tasty?

    Cue the Benny Hill music.

  29. Who is the Patriots OC?

    ++++++++++++

    Delusional fans still haven’t realized that NO ONE WANTS TO BE THE OC OF THAT SQUAD.

    Again, if Belichick invented the system and developed players on offense side, he should be the one who calls the plays if offense struggles.

    If he doesn’t, it proves that he shamelessly took the credits he didn’t deserve. That is simple LOGIC, there is nothing his believers can do about it.

  30. Mahomes, Wilson, Herbert, J Allen, L Jax, Burrow, D Watson (if he plays), D.Carr, maybe Tannehill, maybe M Ryan, are ALL demonstratively BETTER than Jonesy in the AFC, alone. Not to mention possible development of T.Lawrence, Z Wilson, and Tua. Good luck winning gms vs that crew, Mac. That would be “shocking”, as Touchback says.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++
    Wait, you are comparing a bunch of veterans to a rookie. Then you go on to talk about rookies developing and passing Mac. So the clear best rookie QB is going to get passed by a bunch of rookies he out performed, and you do not expect any positive development from Mac!?!? And Mac is playing for the best coach of all time who developed pick 199 into the greatest QB to ever play the game?!?!

  32. Who developed pick 199 into GOAT?

    +++++++++

    It had nothing to do with Belidiot.

    Brady’s skill was mostly about how to score by throwing TO WR IN FRONT OF DEFENDERS, an almost meaningless less against weak defense (like in college) and not giving superior stats, hence didn’t stand out on college.

  33. Keep ball in front of you, every defender knows it, every defender loves to do it.

    What defense loves to do is what makes job hard for QB. NOT what makes you high is what makes QB better.

    Unlike basketball, the job of a defense is NOT preventing QB from completing passes, its job is preventing opponent from scoring.

    That is why all defenses love keeping balls in front of them, because it makes opponents HARDER TO SCORE, NOT HARD TO COMPLETE PASSES.

    That is why Peyton, Rodgers, Favre, Mahomes still couldn’t do what Brady did between 2001 and 2006, because they didn’t have the skills to SCORE ENOUGH. Ya, they could complete several dink n dink, like Mahomes did in SB against Bucs, but they couldn’t score.

    So don’t foolishly think what Brady did before 2007 was easy. It was super super hard. Developed by Belichick? Even now, Belichick still doesn’t know what is going on.

  34. Your timely reminder that Tom Brady‘s career passer rating against Bill Belichick is lower than Tim Tebow and Brian Hoyer.

    That’s not too good is it? Discuss.

    ++++++++++++
    Not really a fair comparison. Brady played BB once and won. Tebow and Hoyer never beat BB going like 0-4.

  36. When you use two games out of 41 playoff games to be prove how great Belidiot was, no surprise to me you use one game to prove how average Brady was.

    Find a statistics teacher to learn what sample size means.

  37. Not sure what the stupid excitement of patriot fans on here are talking about. In the patriots last game, weren’t the Bills something like 7-7 in TD drives? Kinda foolish to think they will even sniff the playoffs this year.
