Aaron Jones wasn't putting up with any questions about the Green Bay Packers entering a rebuild.
Rebuild -- it's a word we've heard far too often this offseason. The Green Bay Packers traded away Aaron Rodgers, and now many believe they will have one of the worst records in football.
Replacing a four-time MVP isn't easy, but the Packers had to move on at some point. The moment has come for Jordan Love to take the reins after developing his game for three years, just as Rodgers did in his first three seasons with the Packers.
The Packers moved on from veterans on both sides of the ball, including Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, Robert Tonyan, Marcedes Lewis, and Dean Lowry. Not re-signing those players doesn't mean the Packers are rebuilding.
They could improve at each of those positions this season.
One person who doesn't believe the Packers are rebuilding is star running back Aaron Jones.
Aaron Jones shuts down talk of Packers rebuild
Jones spoke to reporters following organized team activities this week and was asked about a potential rebuild. He was having none of it.
"We've got everything we need here. If you think we're in a rebuild then you've got the wrong team, the wrong place. We're here to play ball," said Jones. "We're hungry, we're ready to prove a lot of people wrong. We know what people are saying. Everybody has an opinion, and most of them stink."
It's hard not to love that. Jones has been incredibly supportive of new starting quarterback Jordan Love, and he believes this team is talented enough to compete.
Jones is a leader on offense, and the Packers will need to lean on him this season. He is one of Green Bay's star players and also among the most experienced on the team.
You couldn't ask for a better leader in the locker room than Jones. He's already a fan favorite, but his comments shutting down talk of a rebuild will only make him even more popular.
