Chandler Jones came close in his second season to becoming the player the New England Patriots thought they drafted in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, but he’s not quite there yet.
Jones was viewed as a project when he was taken No. 16 overall by the Patriots. Injuries limited him at Syracuse University and he was viewed by some as an interior defender in a defensive end’s...
Chandler Jones experienced the Year 2 bump that Bill Belichick always talks about in 2013, but as the defensive end enters his third year, he can go from starter to star.
Jones went from six sacks to 11.5 from his rookie season to second year. There was speculation he could have been selected to the Pro Bowl or All-Pro team, but he’ll need to play more consistently in 2014.
So, it's that kind of night. After an imporabable seeming comeback, that saw the Patriots win on a touchdown pass with five seconds remaining, just about everyone's excited about the Patriots tonight.

Lot of talk last week about how Chandler Jones had bulked up, and from the picture it looks like the reports are accurate. This is good news, especially when it comes to holding up inside the trenches.
Not many people are talking about it, but I think there’s a lot of pressure on Jones this year. He came out like gangbusters last season, but tapered off after his injury. The...
Every so often, a player gets asked a question that he simply knows he shouldn’t answer. The reporters know it, the players know it, and everyone is on the same wavelength when the player smirks while dodging the question. Hey, it’s understandable. No need to give away trade secrets. Rookie defensive end Chandler Jones had an especially funny moment when he was asked about the...

Patriots lock up first round draft pick Chandler Jones.
Good news and I have to say I am very much enjoying the lack of rookie signing drama across the league this year.

Patriots Rookie Eyeball Test: Chandler Jones
Really praying that 95 is not the final number for Jones. Just not feeling that one at all. Similar to Hightower we just don’t have a whole lot to work with.
Helmet choice? I guess it’s okay. Wake me up when the pads come on.
Final Grade: How many days till training camp?
