GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones is humble about an act of kindness, but head coach Mike McCarthy is praising the character of his team after a photo of running back Aaron Jones helping a woman at a local airport went viral.

"It brings a big smile to my face when that comes across my phone. And I'll just say about Aaron Jones and our players, I look at that as I'm thankful that everyone else is getting to see what I get to see pretty much every day," Jones told Action 2 Sports reporter Dave Schroeder during a news conference Thursday.

On Monday, Twitter user @MonicaAllen11 tweeted a photo of Jones pushing a woman in a wheelchair. The caption says, "Just watched Packers Aaron Jones push a random lady through the Appleton airport because there was no there to push. GO PACK GO."

Jones told reporters, "The lady was sitting next to me on the plane, and I noticed she needed help getting off the plane. She had a cane and was dragging her bags, so I took her bags, and when we got off the plane the flight attendant told her there would be someone there waiting with a wheelchair. There were wheelchairs, but they were folded up and nobody was there. So I asked her if she wanted me to push her. She said yes. So we started walking and when we got down to where her daughter was. She's like. 'Are you a Packers player?' And I was like, 'Yes, ma'am, I am." And then we just had a conversation. But I didn't know anybody took a picture. I was just doing what anybody else would do."

"This is a tremendous locker room. We've been very fortunate and blessed with the caliber of character that we have in our locker room," McCarthy said. "So when things like that are expressed, especially on social media, it does, it brings a smile to my face."

Twitter users praised the running back for being a gentleman and a class act.

Twitter user @teresalingg also posted photos of Jones posing with the woman in the wheelchair. Teresa says that woman is her grandmother.

Jones is entering his second season with the Green Bay Packers after a breakout rookie year.

"But that's what I get to experience with these guys every day. They got their hearts in the right place. I'm sure obviously he {Jones) probably didn't know someone took that picture. That's just the type of guy he is," McCarthy said.
