Some Green Bay Packers players have had their “Madden NFL 22” ratings released.

Davante Adams made the “99 Club” and is the top receiver overall in the game. Za’Darius Smith, on the other hand, is 10th at the edge rusher position, and he wasn’t very happy about it, providing more bulletin-board material and motivation for the Packers’ top pass-rusher.

But now, we know another player’s Madden rating. Running back Aaron Jones’ rating was revealed along with the rest of the top 10 at the running back position.

Jones is the sixth-highest rated back in the game with a 91 overall rating.

Jones is coming off of a great season where he ran the ball 201 times for 1,104 yards and nine touchdowns. The great thing about Jones is he is also a huge threat in the passing game. He caught 47 passes last season for 355 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He is a do-it-all running back.

He could have gone off and made a ton of money elsewhere, but chose to come back to Green Bay to play with the Packers on a somewhat, but not significantly, cheaper deal. The Packers gave him a four-year, $48 million deal, but when you break down the contract, it looks like more of a two-year deal. But you never know, the Packers can always rework the deal with him and sign him to an extension in the future.

Ahead of Jones in the Madden ratings are Christian McCaffrey (97 overall), Derrick Henry (96), Nick Chubb (96), Dalvin Cook (95), and Alvin Kamara (94). Jones is ahead of Saquon Barkley (90), Josh Jacobs (89), Ezekiel Elliott (88), and Joe Mixon (88).

Overall, I’d say this is about right where Jones should be. He is a stud and a playmaker for the Packers and Matt LaFleur’s offense.

The Packers lost Jamaal Williams over the offseason, but with AJ Dillon hopping in to take his place, I think we are going to see some similar production from Jones in the 2021 season, which should still be among the best in the NFL.
