Aaron Jones: Agent, Packers still discussing new deal

Running back Aaron Jones said he remains focused on the task at hand while his agent continues discussions with the Green Bay Packers about a contract extension.

“Yes, they definitely are,” Jones said Tuesday on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football when asked if they are working on a deal.

“I’m just sitting back, waiting until it’s done, I guess. My agent and them are taking care of it. I’m gonna continue to play football and when it’s time to sign the deal, it’ll be time. But I’m just going to focus on football.”

At the moment, Jones is entering the final year of his rookie deal. He is set to earn $2.133 million in base salary, per Spotrac.com.

Jones, 25, led the NFL with 16 rushing touchdowns in 2019. He also ran for 1,084 yards and added 49 receptions for 474 yards with three scores last season.

Jones has rushed for 2,260 yards and 28 touchdowns and had 84 catches for 702 yards and four scores in 40 career games (28 starts) since being selected by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Green Bay opens the season Sunday at Minnesota.
