Packers trade proposal: Aaron Jones to Bills

Aaron Jones

One area that could hold the Buffalo Bills back in the AFC playoff race is its ground game. Their leading rusher from last season, Devin Singletary, now plays for the Houston Texans.

While they have a solid duo of James Cook and Damien Harris, Aaron Jones is a game-changer and could be the missing piece as the Bills aim to make a Super Bowl run.

The Packers kept Jones this offseason, but if they fall out of contention in the first half of the regular season, they need to think about their long-term future. According to Spotrac, Jones's cap hit in 2024 is $17.72 million, which will be the final year of his contract.

This trade has two major benefits for the Packers. It would reduce Jones's 2024 cap hit to $12.35 million, and they would also add a premium draft pick from the Bills.

The Bills face tough competition in the AFC, including Aaron Rodgers' New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins. And that's just in their division. Elsewhere in the conference, there are the Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, and Baltimore Ravens.

Running the ball will be crucial in the postseason. Adding a player as talented as Jones would be well worth it for the Bills, even if they have to give up a second-round pick.

Moving on from a fan favorite wouldn't be easy for the Packers, but it's a move they should consider if they fall out of contention during the 2023 season.
