It’s been a good week for Green Bay Packers running back owner AJ Dillon.

Dillon, who was one of the stars of the show for the Packers in their impressive 17-0 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, is now more than just a running back.

According to his Twitter account, he’s now part-owner of the Green Bay Packers.

If ever there was more reason to love AJ Dillon, this is it. Dillon has already quickly become a fan favorite in Green Bay, and he’s only adding to that here.

Starting today, the Packers are selling stock at $300 each, a rare opportunity to become an NFL owner for fans of the team. It appears the opportunity was too good for Dillon to pass up. He already showed that he owns the Seahawks on Sunday, and now he’s a part-owner of the Packers.

Running back partner Aaron Jones hasn’t been so lucky just yet, however.

It’s possible that very soon, Green Bay’s thunder-and-lightning running back duo could also both be co-owners of the team.

On the football field, Jones could miss some time after injuring his knee against Seattle, which means Dillon would become the featured back for the time being. The second-year player has been impressive all season, a powerful runner but also much-improved in the passing game.

Dillon made the most of his opportunity against the Seahawks, as he has done every time he’s had a chance to prove himself over the past year or so. He looks set to lead the way at running back in this week’s divisional showdown against the Minnesota Vikings.

Now we can also look forward to seeing Dillon, and potentially Jones, at the Packers Shareholders Annual Meeting in the future.

For the time being, we can look forward to seeing Dillon run all over the Vikings’ defense.
