WATCH: Aaron Jones rips off 46-yard TD run against Saints

Green Bay Packers salary cap

If Aaron Jones can run like this the rest of the 2017 season, then perhaps the Green Bay Packers won’t miss Aaron Rodgers as much as we assumed they will.

On Sunday at home in the rain against the New Orleans Saints, the rookie running back toted the rock four times for 70 yards on the game’s opening drive. He capped it off with a gorgeous 46-yard touchdown scamper.

This is a fantastic development for Green Bay, which must find a way to manufacture offense without the best quarterback in the NFL. This score gave the Packers an early 7-0 lead against New Orleans.
