Report: Vikings having constructive dialogue with Aaron Jones

The Minnesota Vikings are in need of a running back and they might have found their next starter.

According to KPRC2 Houston’s Aaron Wilson, the Vikings have had constructive dialogue with former Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones.

The Vikings are in desperate need of a running back and Jones fits the bill. He was released earlier on Monday after the Packers agreed to terms with Josh Jacobs. Despite his age, he still finished highly in multiple metrics.

It’s important to note that talks are just beginning. However, Jones would provide a legitimate starting running back in the backfield for whoever starts at quarterback next year.
