The Green Bay Packers re-signed RB Aaron Jones. The transaction was announced Friday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.
Jones, who was originally selected by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, has played in 54 games with 42 starts over the past four seasons. He has recorded 3,364 yards and 37 rushing touchdowns on 651 carries (5.2 avg.) and hauled in 131 receptions for 1,057 yards (8.1 avg.) and six TDs. Jones is one of only two players in league history to post 3,000-plus rushing yards and 35-plus rushing TDs with an average of 5.00-plus yards per carry in their first four seasons in the NFL, joining RB Jim Brown (1957-60). Jones is one of three players in the NFL to post 2,000-plus rushing yards and 25-plus rushing TDs over the past two seasons (Derrick Henry, Dalvin Cook) and is the first Packer to hit those marks over a two-season span since FB Jim Taylor (1962-63). Jones has also started all four postseason games he has played, registering 244 rushing yards and four TDs on 53 carries (4.6 avg.) with 11 receptions for 52 yards (4.7 avg.) and a TD.
