New cornerback Jack Jones was a Thursday signing for the Patriots. The agent representing him, Jamal Tooson, said the contract was for four years and $4.4 million.
Six of the Patriots’ ten rookies (defensive lineman Sam Roberts, running back Kevin Harris, cornerback Marcus Jones, and offensive linemen Chasen Hines and Andrew Stueber) are currently signed to contracts.
The Patriots have finished their obligatory minicamp at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, but their top two draft picks, offensive lineman Cole Strange and receiver Tyquan Thornton, have yet to sign with the team.
High draft picks sometimes hold off on signing contracts until the week or so before training camp begins in late July.
The Patriots selected Jack Jones in the fourth round, along with two other players.
Jack Jone, who was a minicamp standout picked off a Bailey Zappe pass in 11-on-11 action on Wednesday.
From high school, Jones was a 5-star recruit for USC in 2016. As a true freshman, he got some playing time, and by his second year, he was a starter.
Jones led the Trojans in interceptions with four in his second year on the squad, but he was dismissed from the team before his junior season began due to academic problems and subsequently got into legal trouble the following summer.
