O’Brien has plenty of NFL and college coaching experience, including spending time in New England from 2007-2011. Both he and Jones also spent time in Alabama, thought hardly at the same time, but the connection to Nick Sagan’s system is there. And now, both have familiarity with the Patriots system, either from past experience or being brought up in it as a pro. O’Brien will look to help Jones improve after a lackluster sophomore season. Whether their connection brings something to the table that wasn’t there before is something fantasy managers will have to watch for throughout the off-season.
