Miami looking to steal Aaron Jones away from the Packers
Per a report, the Miami Dolphins and free agent running back Aaron Jones have mutual interest in a potential deal.
Where will Aaron Jones end up playing next season? The standout running back is a free agent for the first time in his career and several teams are interested in getting him to sign on the dotted line. While Packers fans are hoping he returns to Lambeau Field, that may not be the case.
One team, in particular, to monitor moving forward are the Miami Dolphins. Per a report, the AFC East squad is interested in signing Jones, and the speedster also likes the idea of potentially heading to Florida.
Aaron Jones reportedly is interested in signing with the Miami Dolphins this offseason
Jones is coming off a career-best regular season for Green Bay, rushing for 1,104 yards in 14 games. In 2019, he rushed for 1,084 yards and exploded for 16 touchdowns, while also adding three more scores through the air.
With his ability to run the ball and catch the ball out of the backfield, he’s been a fantastic running back for Aaron Rodgers to utilize in the Green Bay offense. With that said, Jones is an unrestricted free agent this offseason and has indeed received loads of interest.
With Miami, the team is coming off a campaign where it went 10-6 and finished in second place behind the Bills in the AFC East standings. With the team looking to build toward the future with 2020 first-round pick Tua Tagovailoa, adding a guy of Jones’ talent would obviously be massive for the offense.
Stay tuned to see where Jones lands. It looks like a decision could be coming in the near future, and the Dolphins very well may end up being the place he calls home next.
