AFC Notes: Mac Jones, Jevon Holland, D.J. Reed, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots


Dolphins S Jevon Holland is entering the final year of his rookie contract but thinks his impending negotiations are on the “back burner” until Tua Tagovailoa gets a deal done. 

“If Tua [Tagovailoa] ain’t getting it done, I’m not getting done. I’m on the back burner. I don’t know much. I just work here,” Holland said, via Omar Kelly of the Miami Herald.

New England moved on from QB Mac Jones this offseason and selected first-round QB Drake Maye as his replacement. Patriots executive vice president of player personnel Eliot Wolf discussed what he learned from the failed Jones era and how they can apply that to help Maye. 

“The main thing that we’ve been able to take away is just being able to support, not only Drake, but every quarterback we have,” Wolf said, via the Up & Adams Show. “Just throw every level of support that we possibly can at the quarterback. And those are things that, whether it’s coaching, whether it’s something off the field, whether it’s virtual reality—whatever the case may be. Just really having the willingness to support whoever the quarterback is in every facet that we possibly can.”
