Packers RB Aaron Jones suspended 2 games

Recommended Posts

There goes his shot at the main RB job, he'll be on the roster because he's probably their best back but Williams has a shot to run away with the job.

No. This happened last year, they all knew about it since then...

It's two games... Aaron Jones will imo still lead the team in rushing attempts by years end

I don't know, he could be in for the old sophomore slump...

I hope he can still run when he returns.

Ok, to be serious for a second...  This being a short suspension likely doesn't have too much effect on the overall roster.  They may choose to keep Devante Mays or Joel Bouagnon as a third RB or maybe 2 FBs adding Joe Kerridge.  This would probably be at the expense of an extra WR, OL, or defensive back, all positions with young talent.  Personally, I would rather keep an extra OL or WR safely on the roster and hope that the combo of Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery can manage the first two weeks of the season.  Randall Cobb and Aaron Ripkowski can take a few RB reps if necessary.  Keeping more than 3 RBs on a team that should, and likely will, be very pass heavy is not great roster management.

This will impact the packers a tiny tiny tiny bit, not too much, but we will miss his services. Williams, Ty, plus who ever they keep for the 4th string back will be fine the first 2 games. This is also still a pass first offense even though they would like to run it too.

They won't let him go for a 2 game suspension, they already knew about  what happened last year.

Stupid mistake, but this doesn't change much or my impression of the guy, I still like him. I just don't understand why they don't just legalize weed everywhere tbh if everyone and their mom does it these days. On the other hand, I don't know why these guys risk big paychecks for a joint.

Why? He didnt beat his girlfriend up. He's stupid for using an illegal drug, but that doesn't make him less of a good person

2 games isn't long, he'll be back by Week 3 and still be the top running back for the Packers.

It just sort of comes off as a PR thing that doesnt look so good now. Like when Bennett slept in the Packer locker room because he was so excited. You cant tell me you feel the same about that than before?
