The Green Bay Packers seem to have an eye on the future, spending their top two 2020 draft picks on a quarterback and running back despite having clear-cut starters at both positions. Even so, their current No. 1 RB might still be part of the long-term plans, as one of Aaron Jones' agents, Chris Cabott, told ESPN Wednesday that he and the Packers have begun talks on a new contract.

"There have been conversations," Cabott said, "and there will continue to be."

Cabott's remarks came the same day Jones himself expressed a desire to remain in Green Bay beyond 2020, the final year of his rookie contract.

"I trust my agency and the Packers," the fourth-year back said on a conference call with reporters. "With that, I would love to be a lifelong Packer. That's my take on that ... I'm really not looking at the market. I'm just focused on myself. I feel like I can play at a really high level and elite level for a very long time, so I'm just going to do what I can, and hopefully that leads to me being a Packer for life. That's my goal."

A fifth-round pick of the Packers in 2017, Jones began his career as a part-time starter behind Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery but broke out in 2019 as the featured ball-carrier under new coach Matt LaFleur. The NFL's co-leader in rushing touchdowns with 16, he added three more scores as a receiver, totaling more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage. The year prior, Jones had nearly 1,000 yards from scrimmage, including 728 on the ground, despite starting just 12 games and opening the season with a two-game suspension.

Jones is due to make $2.18 million in 2020.
