Breaking: Patriots and CB Jonathan Jones agree to 3-year extension

The Patriots just locked up another part of their secondary this afternoon by extending corner Jonathan Jones, as reported by Ian Rapoport.

The speedy Jones made his name last season in the AFC Championship game against the Chiefs, playing a huge role in holding Tyreek Hill to only one catch.

This is a great value deal for a very solid depth guy that the Pats originally signed to a second-round tender to start the season.
