Jermaine Wiggins does not believe Mac Jones has what it takes to become an elite NFL quarterback.
However, the former Patriots tight end thinks New England can use the young signal-caller in order to improve under center.
Wiggins, now a co-host on “The Greg Hill Show,” took to the WEEI airwaves and pined for a Jones blockbuster trade in exchange for one of two superstar signal-callers who could be available this offseason: Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson. Wiggins believes a Jones-Wilson swap, specifically, would be mutually beneficial
for the Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks.
“I would love to trade him to Seattle because they clearly have issues with Russell Wilson,” Wiggins said, as transcribed by WEEI. “He wants out. Pete Carroll gets the quarterback that he can control for the price that he wants. ? And then you as the New England Patriots, getting back to the Super Bowl, because this is what it’s for, you get a top-seven quarterback in the NFL in Russell Wilson, who still has seven elite years ahead of him.”
