Could the Patriots trade Mac Jones away and roll with Bailey Zappe?
Could the New England Patriots start Bailey Zappe moving forward? I mean that would be crazy, but the Patriots looked great under the rookie from Western Kentucky.
Albert Breer has the NFL heads talking after his appearace on Zolak and Bertrand Show.
Albert Breer of The MMQB suggested that the Patriots might not see a massive difference between Jones and backup Bailey Zappe and that the team might even be willing to consider a Jones trade, in an appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “Zolak and Bertrand” Friday.
“Internally, I don’t know if they see this massive gap between Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe,” Breer said “I’m not saying they think Bailey’s as good as Mac, but there was some element of Bailey doing what he was coached to do last year that I think gave Bailey the edge to some degree for a little while there.
“So I think it’ll be interesting to see what would happen if a real offer came along. I don’t think a real offer is going to come along, but it’d be interesting to see what would happen if a real offer did come along.”
All year Mac Jones was going nuts about the offense, and continued to complain about it. I know that did not go over well with Belichick. I would not be shocked if he is traded, but to who? What team would trade for him?
I mean Zappe was solid right….
