Love this deal. Jones played really well last year. Watching Do Your Job 3 last night, and they showed Jones singled up on Kelce playing him really well.

Eagles, you mean? He was exactly the player the Pats needed and didn't have.
Yes, someone here even posted right when Jones was lost to injury that he was going to be the under-the-radar missing player that would really hurt the Pats in their playoff run.

Found it.

Jonathan Jones is a sneaky "bad" loss. I don't know that we'll lose because of his absence, but he provides excellent depth and played respectable minutes on D and on S/Ts. It's also a bummer that his development for 2018 will be slowed bc he was looking to be a dark horse candidate to make us breathe easier when Butler leaves.

I find myself somewhere between "Oh well" and "Damn." Get well soon, JJ.

I remember thinking that at the time, and I’ve certainly see that as an even bigger loss, in hindsight. Had no recollection whatsoever of posting it here, though. Good job, two years ago version of me!

I still think him being out of the SB was a key to them losing.

Excited for this!
You and me both. He’s someone who has improved each year, can keep up with burners, and has some versatility. Special teams ability too. He had a fantastic night tonight too.
