There are rumors stirring about Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones requesting a trade. After a 23-21 loss to the Washington Commanders, it seems like the sky is falling in Green Bay. Some Packers fans are even ready to bench Aaron Rodgers and give Jordan Love a chance. That’s how dire the situation in Green Bay is. But could the recent loss to the Commanders be the tipping point that finally makes star running back Aaron Jones request a trade?
To be clear, Jones did not officially request a trade from the Packers. However, Packers fans are taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on how justified it would be if Aaron Jones did indeed request a trade.
Aaron Jones is too nice, but if he requested a trade before November 1st, it would be justified.

Would Green Bay trade Aaron Jones?
If the Green Bay Packers were to make an Aaron Jones trade happen, it would be a clear sign of them giving up. Realistically, I don’t believe Aaron Jones will be demanding one anytime soon. The trade deadline is Nov. 1. Players, coaches, and Packers fans in Green Bay may be disgruntled after a third straight loss. Yet, it’s still not time to completely give up on the season and make an Aaron Jones trade.
Green Bay ran the ball a season-low 12 times against the Commanders on Sunday. Aaron Jones had eight carries for 23 yards, while AJ Dillon had four carries for 15 yards. In addition, Jones had nine catches for 53 yards and led the way with two touchdowns. To keep Jones happy, the Packers need to give him more carries. I’m sure winning football games would make him happy too. However, it’s hard to win football games when you are running the ball so little. Jones might be Green Bay’s best player so they can’t afford to lose him. Although, if Green Bay’s season continues to trend in this downward direction will Aaron Jones want a trade to take his talent elsewhere?
