Aaron Jones recently shared a surprise with his Instagram followers:
He made the announcement with his girlfriend, Crystal Molina.
Words can’t Describe how excited I am to become a father. To have a little mini me running around. Thank you Crystal for all your sacrifices. I know it’s not easy with me not always being available right now but just know I am grateful for you.
A fifth round pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, Jones is having a hell of season under the leadership of Matt LaFluer who has shown more of a willingness to utilize Jones properly than his predecesor, Mike McCarthy.
Jones has expressed before that he realizes he has been overlooked in the past, but has made a lot of progress this season silencing the nonbelievers. He almost certainly feels a lot of pressure to perform well in the playoffs now that the Packers will not be sitting this one out.
At 5’9.5″ and 208lbs, Jones is often in the shadows of much taller figures on the field. However, he has the proven speed and reliability to upset defenses. He has been a frequent passing target for QB Aaron Rodgers this season and has been useful for creating mismatches with defense. Statistically, he has been having a breakout year with 16 rushing TDs and 3 reception TDs. He has also managed to start a career high 16 games this season.
We also mentioned recently that Davante Adams also became a father a few months ago and we expect this trend to continue with the youthfulness of the current roster.
