“Mac, good energy. Awesome guy, man. You can tell he’s happy to be here. Comes to work and you just can feel his energy and his leadership already,” Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne said Thursday, via WEEI Radio.

“He has a swag to him that I didn’t know that he had at first. He’s out there confident and that’s what you need in a quarterback, and in all our players. You’ve gotta have confidence. He’s come in with that and I think that’s going to take him a long way. If you can believe in yourself in all times, for any player, you’ll have success anywhere you are. So I can just see the confidence.”
