The New England Patriots find themselves in dire need of a quarterback upgrade, with Mac Jones sparking divided opinions among fans.

As speculation swirls around Jones's future with the Patriots, social media is abuzz with rumors of a potential exit, with the Seattle Seahawks emerging as an unexpected suitor. This rumor gains traction, especially considering Geno Smith's underwhelming performance in the previous season.

Jones endured a challenging 2023 season, marked by changes in coaching staff and reported friction with head coach Bill Belichick. His struggles led to a loss of confidence, benching, and purported damage to his reputation within the team.

Despite the option to trade Jones, the Patriots may not command a substantial return for the former first-round pick given his recent performances.


Meanwhile, Geno Smith's solid 2023 season, with 3,624 yards and 20 touchdowns to nine interceptions, poses a dilemma for the Patriots. While there have been discussions about Smith's potential departure, it remains uncertain if such a move will materialize.

Replacing Smith with a quarterback of lesser caliber appears far from ideal for the Patriots, underscoring the complexities of their quarterback situation.
