Linebacker Jarvis Jones

Rumors have emerged from the Patriots Lock Room: Linebacker Jarvis Jones will be traded

Jarvis Jones, the linebacker drafted fifth overall in the 2014 draft, may be leaving us soon. On paper he's a thirty-one-year old linebacker who's played his entire career with the New England Patriots.

But, in our hearts, he's the man who's saved us game after game. With last minute plays and last second turnovers; the man was a monster. Sure, one can argue that he started off a little slow as he learned the playbook but for half a decade now, he's been leading these linebacker corps with a high level of skill and game knowledge.

As we mourn the loss of one of our favorite players, we have to take a look at some of his accomplishments.

With 814 tackles in his career as a Patriot, he sits at #22 all time for GZL, and #2 as a Patriot, only behind Jerod Mayo. If he stayed for the extra two years on his contract, he'd be able to find a spot in the top ten.

The next stat is where it gets impressive. Although only ranked #22 all time in tackles, he jumps up to the 15th spot for tackles for loss. He even beats Jerod Mayo, who has over 200 more tackles than him.

He was also able to put up 26 sacks in his career. This is a higher sack count than anyone with more tackles than him. The number one tackling machine? Von Miller, with 1239 tackles in his career. His sack count? 17.

Jarvis Jones was a heat seeking missile. And the Patriots loved to aim him at opposing Quarterbacks.

His turnover stats aren't as impressive, but still no small feat. 8 forced fumbles with 5 recoveries, along with 15 interceptions. Even taking two of them back for touchdowns.

Is that what Jarvis Jones' career boils down to? 814 tackles, 133 tackles for loss, 26 sacks, 8 forced fumbles and 15 interceptions?

Maybe for everyone else. But for us at Patriots Nation, the impact he made on this team was far more than the stats he was able to acquire throughout his career. No, the impact he made was the accumulation of the heart, soul, and determination that he brought to the team on every down in every quarter of every season.

The man will be missed.
