Cornerback Jack Jones, who faces charges stemming from an arrest at Boston’s Logan International Airport last month, “will be out there” when the Patriots open training camp Wednesday, coach Bill Belichick said. Here’s what you need to know:
- Jones was arrested last month after a state trooper found two firearms in Jones’ carry-on luggage, according to police. He pled not guilty to weapons charges and is due back in court on Aug. 18.
- When speaking to reporters Tuesday morning, Belichick declined to comment further on Jones’ legal situation.
- The team hasn’t received any word on a potential suspension for Jones, according to a league source.
Jones, 25, was charged last month with two counts of each of the following charges: possession of a concealed weapon in a secure area of an airport, possession of ammunition without a firearm identification card, unlawful use of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm and possession of a large-capacity feeding device.
As a rookie last season, Jones had 25 solo tackles and two interceptions. The Patriots selected Jones with the No. 121 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft out of Arizona State.
Jones’ next court date, Aug. 18, is a day before New England’s second preseason game at Green Bay.
