Patriots | Chandler Jones will perform MMA offseason training

New England Patriots DE Chandler Jones is taking up mixed martial arts training during the offseason. Jones's brother is UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, and Chandler believes training with his brother can help him in hand-to-hand combat at the line of scrimmage. "That definitely helps you," Jones said. "(Jon) has a boxing coach, a muay Thai coach and a jiu jitsu coach. That helps a lot when you're tugging, playing in the trenches. My biggest thing is I try to get my hands inside before blockers touch me so if I work on my hand speed, that'll be a great aspect to add to my game."
