Arguably the best running back set to hit the open market will not hit the open market after all.

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones revealed he will be remaining with the franchise that drafted him with a post to social media captioned “Let’s run it back.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter added some context reporting that Jones’ deal is for four years and $48 million. It includes a $13 million signing bonus, as well.

“Aaron would have signed for more in free agency but wanted to stay in Green Bay,” Jones’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN.

Jones, 26, is coming off his a Pro Bowl season in 2020 as he and NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers helped the Packers to the NFC Championship Game.

The Packers, who drafted Jones in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, opted not to place the franchise tag on him last week. He’s since compiled consecutive 1,000-yard seasons with 19 combined touchdowns (16 rushing) during the 2019 season.

His 1,104 rushing yards in 2020 were a career-best while his pass-catching ability led him to career highs in receiving yards (474) and receptions (49) in 2019.
