Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones said he wants to spend his entire career with the Packers. Jones' agent said the two sides have talked about a new contract and will continue to negotiate.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones scored a league-high 14 touchdowns inside the red zone in 2019.
Huddle Up: It's worth mentioning 25 of his 33 red zone carries occurred inside the 5. Jones fared very well on those eight longer attempts as he scored six times. All this is notable because it seems very likely he'll either share or lose a bulk of those 25 carries to 247-pound rookie A.J. Dillon this year. While Jones has very little chance of matching last year's 16 rushing touchdowns, he will remain the clear lead back in Green Bay and should be considered as a strong RB2 option.
