Just how good of a quarterback can Mac Jones become? That’s a question many, including the New England Patriots, are wondering. Troy Aikman though seems pretty convinced about Jones’ ability.

Aikman was the analyst for the “Monday Night Football” game between Jones’ Patriots and the Chicago Bears in Week 7. Prior to the game, Aikman made an appearance on “Monday Night Countdown.” That’s when Aikman made his feelings on Jones clear.

“I’m a big believer in Mac Jones,” Aikman said. “I think he’s a terrific talent.”

Many felt that the Patriots had hit on their quarterback pick with Jones, whom they selected No. 15 overall in last year’s draft. He passed for 3,801 yards, 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions as a rookie, while the team went 10-7 and made the playoffs.

This season, Jones has passed for just two touchdowns and five interceptions. He has missed time with a sprained ankle.
