Among the positions that could be getting an overhaul for the Green Bay Packers in 2024 is the running back spot. The Packers have had a very strong two-headed monster at the position in Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon over the last handful of years, but that chapter may soon be coming to a close.
Dillon, a second-round pick out of Boston College in 2020, is having the worst year of his career since his rookie season. He's averaged just 3.4 yards per carry this season, he only had two total touchdowns (despite Aaron Jones struggling with injuries), and he's getting more carries per game than any other season in his career.
The lack of efficiency from Dillon over the long haul of the season has undoubtedly called into question whether or not he'll be with the team in 2024. The Packers don't need to overpay, and Dillon may look for a fresh start elsewhere. He doesn't have a single game this season with over 100 yards from scrimmage, and the lack of great production despite increased opportunity has perhaps made the Packers' decision on what to do going forward a little bit easier.
Dillon did have a strong stretch there from October-December where he was making more plays and getting back in the Green Bay Packers "circle of trust," but I still think the more likely scenario for him in 2024 is playing elsewhere.
