The Green Bay Packers are working on a new contract for Aaron Jones.
That comes from the running back himself. Appearing Tuesday on Good Morning Football on the NFL Network, Jones said the two sides are talking.

A number of other running back deals this offseason, including Tennessee’s Derrick Henry, set the market for Jones, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
The UTEP alum, who had 1,558 yards from scrimmage and an NFL-best 19 touchdowns last season, is among several key players on expiring contracts. The list includes All-Pro tackle David Bakhtiari, center Corey Linsley and cornerback Kevin King.
Green Bay will open the 2020 season at Minnesota on Sunday.
