Before he played at Alabama and way before he would be selected by the New England Patriots to be the face of the franchise, Mac Jones was already front and center of the camera as a child model.
On his weekly appearance on WEEI, Jones was asked about his first and worst jobs before making it to the NFL, and the answer surprised hosts Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria.
“First job was probably just like doing yard work for my dad. At first, I obviously did it for free, and then eventually me and my brother were scheming him up for some money,” Jones said. “Then worst job, I mean I used to be a child model and actor or whatever. That was fun.”
“Nothing crazy but there are a few commercials out there that you guys can try to find… I broke the camera.”
When asked if this was something that was common knowledge among his teammates:
“I think a lot of people know,” Jones replied.
If his teammates didn’t know about it, they certainly will now.
Here’s the proof.
Here Jones at a talent show:
After a slow start, the Patriots have won four-straight games, the most recent being a 45-7 beatdown of the Cleveland Browns that saw Jones throw three touchdown passes. It was the best game of his short career so far.
Through 10 games, Jones leads all rookie QBs with 2,333 passing yards, a 69.0 percent completion rate and 13 touchdowns.
