A wise man once said: The objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.
Although Mac Jones is currently behind Cam Newton on the New England depth map, Newton may be looking at the exact location of the rookie QB during training camp in the rearview mirror.

The training camp report-training camp, please pay attention-shows that the gap between the current starter Newton and the first-round draft pick Jones is much smaller than you might think. If the news that Newton concealed recently is any indication, at least.
The following is the latest news from Newton’s first week of debut prospects:
Will Cam Newton start for the Patriots?
Two words: Who knows? Although Bill Belichick usually plays near the vest, when it comes to who will start Week 1, Cam Newton knows as much as you, if his mysterious answer on Monday is Any signs.
When asked if Belichick had told him he was about to start Week 1, Cam Newton said, “Everything you all know, I know.” #patriot

Cam Newton was asked if Belichick had told him that he was a starter in the first week of the regular season. “You know he never said that.”
He added: “Everything you will know, I know…before week 1, we have a lot to worry about.” That is his focus now.

“You know he didn’t say that,” Newton said Monday. “What you know, I know.”
Although it is still a safe bet to expect Newton to start, Jones still performed well in training camp and made his debut in the Patriots’ first preseason game against Washington football.
In other words, it will take more time for the Patriots to turn to Jones in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season.
As Newton’s first law says: a moving object will remain in motion unless it is placed on a stool by Bill Belichick. Or something else.
