Opportunity for Mac Jones 

Forgotten in the midst of the battle between Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts, quarterback Mac Jones will receive a big opportunity when A-Day rolls around. Jones has already been penciled in as the third-string quarterback by many. With Tagovailoa sustaining a setback with his injury, the door is left open for Jones, a 3-star recruit out of high school.
