After cementing his quarterback position with the New England Patriots in his rookie season, Mac Jones can look forward to fulfilling more of his potential in his second NFL campaign. The first round draft pick had the impossible job of replacing Tom Brady at the Patriots, but Jones has done enough to impress the heirarchy and earn himself a shot at becoming the franchise's new quarterback. But for that to become reality, Jones is under no illusion about the need to improve, and the 23-year-old is already making changes to his lifestyle to maximise his potential. Speaking of his preparations this summer, Jones said that a change to his diet is helping him to make "significant strides".

"I think it's important to assess everything and that was one of the things I want to improve. I made significant strides," Jones said. "Fixing my body, feeling comfortable, feeling healthier and better. At the end of the day, you're still a human and you want to eat what you want to eat, but you have to be disciplined the best you can." "I think it all goes back into just trying to become a better player and person," Jones added. "That was my goal this offseason. I feel better, I feel confident and that's what's important. "I'm just going to try and go in there and do my thing and lead everybody and help us come together as a unit. So, that's kind of what it's all about. The offseason is a great time to sit back, relax a little bit, but also try and make strides in where you want to make strides. I feel like I've done that."

Jones' leaner frame was noticable during the Patriots training camp, and teammates have noticed his improved confidence and leadership on the field. After ending the year with 3,801 passing yards, 22 touchdowns, 13 interceptions, and a remarkably high 67.6% completion rate, Jones will only hope to see his impressive numbers rise as he grows in both confidence and experience.
