The Packers have quite the dilemma heading into next offseason, when they need to decide which of their high profile free agents they want to re-sign: some combination of David Bakhtiari, Corey Linsley, Kevin King, and Aaron Jones.

Heading into the season many fans were weary of paying a running back big money with how unpredictable and demanding the position can be, but just two games into the season the conversation has changed.

Aaron Jones is leading the NFL in rushing yards (thanks in part to his 75 yard touchdown right out of halftime last Sunday against the Lions), has four touchdowns, and has all around been one of the best running backs in the league.

Should the Packers prioritize paying Aaron Jones?

 

Michael Lombari, former NFL GM/Radio.com Sports NFL Insider, joined Bill on Tuesday to talk about paying Aaron Jones, what he's seen from Aaron Rodgers, stacking up the NFC, and more:

How impressed has he been with Aaron Rodgers through two games this season?

Does he think Aaron trusts his receivers?

Why doesn’t Russell Wilson get the respect he deserves?

Who does he think the best teams of the NFC are?

How legit does he think the 2-0 Bears are?
