The New England Patriots have signed first-round QB Mac Jones to a four-year rookie contract on Tuesday, according to Field Yates.
The Patriots have now signed all but two of their 2021 draft picks:
Jones, 22, took over as the starter for the Crimson Tide in 2020 and led one of the best offenses in school history. He was a consensus All-American as a redshirt Junior and won the Davey O’Brien Award. The Patriots took Jones with pick No. 15 overall.
Jones is projected to sign a four-year, $15,586,353 contract with the Patriots that includes a $8,695,530 signing bonus. The Patriots will have a fifth-year option to pick up on him in 2024.
During his three-year college career at Alabama, Jones completed 74.3 percent of his passes for 4,500 yards, 41 touchdowns and four interceptions over the course of 30 games.
