New nickname in hand, Pats rookie Jones finding his footing

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Mac Jones has his new nickname.

He also is slowly getting more comfortable existing in the whirlwind that has been his first month as an NFL rookie quarterback.

"Yeah, it's been good," the Patriots' first-round selection said Thursday when asked to describe how his relationship is developing with incumbent starter Cam Newton. "He calls me Mac `n Cheese so I've got my nickname."
