Patriots QB Mac Jones wasn't surprised to win starting job


The New England Patriots stunned many on the final day of August by parting ways with veteran quarterback and 2015 NFL Most Valuable Player Cam Newton, a decision that awarded rookie and first-round draft pick Mac Jones the starting job. 

According to Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston, Jones explained during a Tuesday appearance on local sports radio station WEEI that he wasn’t surprised to be named QB1 ahead of Sunday’s regular-season opener against the Miami Dolphins.
