Chandler Jones says he called Pats coach Belichick after he was traded to “Thank him”

Patriots have traded DE Chandler Jones to the Cardinals

Patriots former DE Chandler Jones is very happy that he landed with the Cardinals

Chandler Jones was dealt in the off-season for offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper who is already banged up from practice.  Jones was a very solid player for the Patriots, and according to a report with the USA Today, Jones was so thankful he was traded to a good team.

“I called him the next day and said, ‘Hey, you could’ve traded me to any other team, so thank you for not trading me to a crappy team,’” Jones said, adding that what he actually said was more vulgar than “crappy.”

The Cardinals are a very good team, but he did say that he heard the Patriots were interested in trading him, he just took it with a grain of salt. He said after it happened though he was a little shocked.

“They’re not known for really paying guys over there,” Jones said of the Patriots. “There were rumors going around that I might be traded, but you never really read too much into rumors. When it happened, it was just a tad shocking. But I packed my bags and moved on.”
