Green Bay officially signed on Friday to roll back Aaron Jones to a four-year deal worth $ 48 million.
The deal includes a two-year potential that would penalize the Packers with $ 6.5 million in dead money if they cut Jones but saved them $ 12.8 million for the 2023 cap.
Jones, who was selected in the fifth round by the Packers in 2017, has accumulated 4,421 yards and 43 touchdowns in his four NFL seasons. He led the NFL with a total of 19 touchdowns in 2019 and finished fourth with 1,104 rushing yards last season.
Jamaal Williams, who has served as Jones running mate in the backfield for the past four seasons, signed with Detroit in the free agency. That means AJ Dillon, a selection of the Packers for the 2020 second round, will act as a replacement for Jones in 2021.
