Green Bay Packers make a surprising move, releasing veteran running back Aaron Jones amid contract disputes and signing Josh Jacobs. General Manager Brian Gutekunst expressed gratitude for Jones’ contributions. Jones, drafted in 2017, was a crucial figure in the Packers’ offense, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2020. Despite injury setbacks in 2023, Jones finished strong. With 5,940 rushing yards and 45 touchdowns, he leaves a significant legacy. Jacobs‘ arrival raises doubts about A.J. Dillon’s future with the team. If Dillon also departs, 320 carries from last season will need replacement, likely falling to Jacobs.
