Aaron Jones, RB (GB)

Trains with Jordan Love

Jones worked with Jordan Love in California this offseason, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Jones suggested Wednesday that earning Aaron Rodgers' trust had been a big factor in his personal success, per Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. The 28-year-old running back now hopes to form a similar on-field relationship with the Packers' new starting quarterback, hoping his experience as a pass catcher and blocker can help Love thrive. The Packers again figure to run much of their offense through Jones and power back AJ Dillon, with Love's mobility potentially adding a third component defenses need to be aware of on the ground. Jones had odd stat lines in his final season playing alongside Rodgers, getting only two TDs out of a career-high 1,121 rushing yards but then five TDs from 395 receiving yards. The receiving production will be tougher to maintain post-Rodgers, though Jones figures to remain one of the team's pass-catching priorities given how young the Packers are at WR and TE.
