Spoiler: Jones isn't the Henry role.ericanadian wrote: ↑Tue Apr 28, 2020 1:47 pmThis isn’t the same Green Bay management that never paid RBs, so I’m not sure why people are talking about Jones like he’s for sure leaving as an FA. I think LaFleur is trying to recreate the Henry/Lewis tandem he had in Tennessee. He tried to do it with Williams/Jones last year, but Williams isn’t very good. While its no sure thing that they extend Jones, I don’t think he’ll break the bank in this environment and I can absolutely see Green Bay paying him and running a tandem. A lot of rumours seem to point towards a more run heavy system and less reliance on Rodgers and two capable RBs would be a step towards that.
Even if Jones stays, Dillon is an early down, volume running back in the Henry mold and is going to eat into his carries and redzone usage. With a back that big, you can't keep him off the field in goal line formations.
