Georgia native Jonathan Jones re-signs with Patriots
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Georgia native and veteran cornerback Jonathan Jones has re-signed with the New England Patriots on a two-year deal, one of his representatives confirmed to Atlanta News First.
Jones signed with the Patriots in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn.
With veteran safety Devin McCourty recently announcing his retirement, Jones is currently the longest-tenured Patriots defender on the roster.
Jones helped the Patriots win two Super Bowls, during his rookie season in 2016 and in 2018 when the Patriots defeated the L.A. Rams 13-3 at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Some of his teammates and former teammates are happy to have him back with the team.
