New England Patriots teammates and former Crimson Tide compatriots Mac Jones and Damien Harris have known each other for awhile now.

Jones and Harris played together for two years at Alabama from 2018 until Harris was drafted in 2019.

While they didn’t start together, it’s clear that they had a close friendship regardless of playing time.

Harris made it to the NFL first of the pair, being drafted in the third round by the Patriots in the 2019 NFL Draft. Since his arrival, he’s amassed 1,034 yards and five touchdowns on the ground.

Jones would arrive a couple of years later. He was taken 15th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft and won the starting job over former Auburn QB Cam Newton early.

Both guys are now full-time starters together in the NFL. Their friendship remains solid after a recent video of Jones and Harris was put on Twitter performing their signature handshake while playing a game against the New York Jets.

This is the same handshake that they shared during their time at Alabama, as you’ll see in the following series of tweets.
