Lions to carry on without RB Johnson

The Detroit Lions informed running back KERRYON JOHNSON yesterday that he will be waived today. Johnson, 23, was the team’s second-round draft pick in 2018. He struggled with injuries in hisMore first two seasons, before settling into a third-down role in 2020. D’ANDRE SWIFT will start for the Lions this season, with new addition JAMAAL WILLIAMS set to handle the backup role. The Lions also drafted rookie running back JERMAR JEFFERSON in the seventh-round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Less

Around the NFL: No. 2 running backs

I wonder if the Packers have any misgivings about the contract they just gave Aaron Jones. Great back and important to get him back, but the running back market hasn't really developed. Seems they could have potentially let him test the market and then brought him back at a lower price. Most of the free agent signings have been No. 2 types.   more »

Around the NFL: Aaron Jones

In a mild surprise, to me at least, the Packers signed Aaron Jones yesterday to a four-year, $48 million contract. It's surprising only in that Green Bay protect Jones from leaving with the franchise tag, making it seem he'd reach the open market. It's not surprising in terms of what Jones has earned over the past few seasons.   more »

Green Bay RB Williams hoping to remain with Packers

Green Bay Packers running back JAMAAL WILLIAMS said this week that he would love “to be a Packer all my life”. With his existing contract set to expire, however, Williams addedMore that he is prepared to head into free agency if the Packers do not offer a new deal. Green Bay is currently strapped by the salary cap and may let Williams test the open market before making a real push to bring him back. The Packers also selected A.J. DILLON in the second round of last year’s draft as a possible replacement should Williams or fellow running back AARON JONES leave in free agency. Less

Around the NFL: Packers running backs

Couple of recent stories on Green Bay free agent running back Aaron Jones. One (which I question) indicates he could command up to $15 million per season; that sounds high. Another that Miami could be one of the interested teams. Whatever the case, it seems likely that some team will offer him more than the Packers, and he'll be gone.   more »

Factoid: Green Bay backfield

Yesterday I was asked about the running back situation in Green Bay. Aaron Jones will start, but the No. 2 could be either second-rounder A.J. Dillon or veteran Jamaal Williams. Both Jones and Williams are in the final year of their rookie contract, so Dillon might be the only one on the roster a year from now.   more »

The 49ers did a remarkably good job of shutting down Dalvin Cook last week, especially in the passing game. He caught 6 passes, but they resulted in only 8 yards. That kind of a ratio is rare.  more »
