Another option is to trade Aaron Jones. The acquiring team would be taking on his contract, and they would require reassurance that Jones' hamstring issue isn't a major concern. But there's no denying the impact Jones could make for any offense, especially a contending team needing help at running back.

Take the Baltimore Ravens as an example. The Ravens are built to run the football. They have a dominant offensive line, one that ranked seventh in run block win rate entering Week 8, per ESPN.

They lost starting running back J.K. Dobbins to a torn Achilles in Week 1 and now have a backfield led by Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.

Lamar Jackson is the Ravens' leading rusher, and defenses must always respect his ability to run the football. Now, imagine Aaron Jones joining that offense. He would dominate. For Baltimore to reach the next level and compete with the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC, running the football is crucial.

Jones comes with a greater financial commitment than Dillon, but a team like the Ravens would be adding a game-changer to their offense. The Packers are going nowhere this year and could part ways with Jones in the offseason due to his contract. They should listen to trade offers before Tuesday's deadline.
