New England Patriots QB Mac Jones has been involved in yet another questionable situation.
Jones has only been in the league for three seasons, yet he’s been deemed a dirty player multiple times thus far by many players.
Now, he’s being singled out for punching New York Jets star Sauce Gardner in the groin before he shoved him onto the ground.
Following the game, the Alabama product claimed that he didn’t intentionally hit Gardner, stating that he has a lot of respect for him and that he just wanted to get back into the huddle (via ProFootballTalk).
“Sauce is one of the best corners in the NFL. I have a lot of respect for him. On that play, nothing was intentional. I just got up and went back to the huddle, and that’s it,” Jones said.

We all know what we saw, and he shouldn’t get the benefit of the doubt after so many times he’s been involved in these sorts of situations.
Even some of his colleagues took to social media to call him out and let it be known that it’s not the first time that he has done something like this, and turning that narrative and reputation around is going to be almost impossible for him at this point.
The Patriots have a date with the Dallas Cowboys and their fierce defense coming up next.
The Cowboys will look to bounce back from an embarrassing loss to the Arizona Cardinals, and they’ll want to make a statement.
That doesn’t bode well for Jones, and we can only hope he doesn’t get involved in any other situation like this ever again.
