GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Packers running back Aaron Jones will stay in Green Bay this season, according to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter.

Schefter reports that Jones’ agents and the Packers reached an agreement on an $11 million salary for the 2023 season. It includes an $8.52 million signing bonus.

“Year 7 is Gonna be crazy in Lambeau,” Jones tweeted. “Honored to carry the G and blessed to be back.”

“Aaron Jones still will have two years remaining on his contract with the Packers, but this year has been adjusted. Including this season, Jones now will have made $31 million since 2021, the most for any running back other than Christian McCaffrey,” Schefter tweeted.

ESPN reporter and Cover 2 contributor Rob Demovsky reports that the Packers needed to restructure Jones’ contract.

“Jones, who was scheduled to make $16 million, agreed to cut that by $5 million in exchange for a signing bonus of $8.52 million as part of his total pay of $11 million for the 2023 season,” writes Demovsky.

In addition to his work on the field, Jones has been a big part of the community with his charitable work. He was the Packers’ Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee.

Now the sports world waits to see what quarterback Aaron Rodgers decides. He’s entered a darkness isolation retreat that’s expected to last four days.

Reports say the New York Jets have expressed interest in Rodgers.
