Wins starting job

Jones will start Week 1 against Miami, while Cam Newton has been released, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Jones apparently showed enough to not only win the starting job but also push Newton off the roster. With Jarrett Stidham (back) on the PUP list and likely out for at least the first half of the season, 35-year-old Brian Hoyer is the only remaining quarterback on the Patriots' active roster behind the rookie out of Alabama. As such, Jones should have a long leash to work through any struggles, especially after splitting first-team reps all summer. He'll start things off with a home game against the Dolphins in Week 1, followed by a trip to the Meadowlands to face the Jets in Week 2 and then home dates with the Saints (Week 3) and Buccaneers (Week 4).
