I will let you decide if the former president means this as a compliment or not.

The Fields-Jones comparison makes some sense. Both QBs are former 1st-round picks who have had underwhelming starts to their careers. Both QBs can make plays with their legs. Jones and Fields are also similarly-sized.

In 2019, Jones’ rookie season, the QB had 3,027 yards to go with 24 TDs and 12 INTs.

In 2021, Fields’ rookie season, the QB had 1,870 yards with 7 TDs and 10 INTs. Fields was not named the starter until Week 3, however, and was not placed in an ideal situation.

All-in-all, not a bad comparison by the former president.
