Green Bay Packers running back signing news

Green Bay is set to shake up its backfield, with the Packers expected to ink a four-year, $48 million deal with former Raiders running back Josh Jacobs. This move signals the end of Aaron Jones’ tenure in Green Bay. Jones, a dynamic player for the Packers, will be released after spending seven years with the team.

Despite his contributions, the decision was influenced by Jones’ $17.575 million cap hit and recent injury woes. Jacobs, who led the NFL in rush yards in 2022, offers a younger and potentially more cost-effective option for the Packers. Green Bay is banking on Jacobs’ ability to provide a similar impact to Jones, enhancing their offense’s versatility. With this move, the Packers aim to maintain a dual-threat workhorse while getting younger at the position. AJ Dillon’s future with the team remains uncertain as he is currently a free agent.
