Not the brightest move by Jack Jones.
After two firearms were found in his carry-on baggage during a security check at Logan Airport, New England Patriots’ cornerback Jack Jones was arrested on Friday.
The incident has raised concerns about Jones’ future in both his personal life and the NFL.

The 25-year-old now faces a number of serious charges, including possession of a concealed weapon, possession of ammunition without a firearm identification card, unlawful possession of a firearm and carrying a loaded firearm. Jones has also been charged with possession of a large-capacity feeding device, according to a State Police report.
Jones was released on bail set at $50,000 and is scheduled to appear in East Boston District Court for arraignment next week. The Patriots have responded to the incident with a statement stating that they are gathering more information and will not be commenting further at this time.
Jones’ football career has also been fraught with off-field troubles, including a previous felony charge in 2018.
