New England Patriots Rumors: 3 QB Replacements for Mac Jones

The New England Patriots have made it known that they are ready to move on from Mac Jones after his rough 2022 season. If they do in fact trade him, let's discuss three potential replacements for him.

Lamar Jackson: The Patriots should seriously consider making a push for Lamar Jackson. It is apparent that he wants out of Baltimore, and the Patriots could be the perfect landing spot for him. He would help New England look significantly better on paper and could be the star they need to become a playoff team again.

Trey Lance: Trey Lance's name has come up in the rumor mill this offseason, as the San Francisco 49ers have a surplus of quarterbacks. As a result, the Patriots could consider making a push for the 22-year-old. He is viewed as having a plethora of potential, and he could thrive having Bill Belichick as his head coach. 

Bailey Zappe: If the Patriots do not want to explore the trade market and would prefer to hold onto assets, Bailey Zappe could take over Jones' starting job. The 23-year-old outperformed Jones at times last season and showed the potential that he could handle being a QB1.
