4. Draft Aaron Jones' successor

Aaron Jones' time in Green Bay could be coming to an end. Jones is still a game-changer, but he has struggled to stay healthy this season, and his contract will force the Packers to make a decision. The Packers will take on a $17.72 million cap hit if they retain Jones next season unless he is willing to take another pay cut.

But the time may have come to make a change at running back. Jones battled a hamstring injury that forced him out of three games and limited him in others, and he is now out due to an MCL sprain. Jones is averaging a career-low 3.7 yards per carry, having never previously fallen below 4.6 in his previous six seasons.

AJ Dillon's expiring contract complicates things, but his play over the past month could land him a new deal, although the Packers likely won't spend big to retain their former second-round pick.

Green Bay could turn to the draft to find its new RB1. There are several talented players to watch on Day 2 of the draft, including Ohio State's TreVeyon Henderson, Florida State's Trey Benson, and Texas' Jonathon Brooks.

Jones may come back on another pay cut and lead the Packers' backfield in 2024, but moving on might be the way to go, as tough as that would be.
