RB Aaron Jones Has a Twin Brother and He Will Work Out with Team

Like a plot twist in a cheesy television soap opera, Aaron Jones’ brother, Alvin Jones, will be working out with the team pending clearance of COVID-19 protocol. This is according to a few different sources this week.

As a sixth round pick in 2017, Jones’ performance at running back has paid off in dividends. Perhaps the Packers see more hidden value in his brother, Alvin Jones — a free agent who played linebacker at the University of Texas at El Paso along with his brother. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens in 2018 as an undrafted free agent. Soon after, he was placed on injured reserve and then released and resigned to the practice squad.

Jones is a fraternal twin meaning he shares 50% of his DNA with his brother Aaron. Both of their parents were NCOs in the US Army — so they likely share the same discipline and work ethic. They have been close their whole lives, often sharing the same room as their family moved from Georgia to Germany to Tennessee and then Texas. They were even roommates together when attending UTEP.

While it’s a feel good story, the likelihood of Alvin joining more than just the practice squad is probably pretty low. Alvin’s presence on the team could possibly help Aaron decide to take a more team-friendly deal down the line…

    I think we all forget sometimes that Aaron Jones was a 5th round compensatory pick late in the 5th round, for the Packers losing Hayward in 2016.

    I read this and i’m thinking two things….wondering what the status of Kirksey is.
    .
    Signing a brother of a star player for any reason other than on his own merit and talent, is one bad business decision.

      Agreed. Also, that can’t mean anything good for Kirksey.

        BTW Kato…i think they might activate ESB today.
        .
        I want you to be right on him, we’re gonna need that maybe today, but definitely down the road.
        .
        We may have to outscore everyone just like back in 2011.

          Yeah I don’t know if he will have a big impact today, but wouldn’t be surprised if he was used as the jet sweep guy today

    There needs to be more anti Viking sentiment in these articles.

      I hear ya, but they are 1-4 man….plus, i don’t hear any loudmouth soup anymore.
      .
      I kinda miss that loudmouth soup also. Sometimes some color in a black and white room is a good thing.
      .
      But if memory serves….I told him…”No soup for you…1 year!!”

    The Bucs had 38 points and less than 300 yards. That’s not on the defense

    Ok…looks like some voice of reason is needed.
    .
    Lets put the brakes on comparing this offense to the 2011 offense. That’s an insult to the 2011 offense.
    This offense has done it for 4 games, 25% of the season. Against teams with a combined 5-14 record.
    The 2011 offense sustained it for 16 games. Lets not take this team, 4 games, 3 sad teams and declare this team “currently” better than the 2011 offense….C’MON MAN!
