A.J. Dillon Re-Signs With The Packers

It is official. A.J. Dillon is back in Green Bay. The four-year veteran running back decided to return to the Packers despite receiving interested from multiple other teams.

Green Bay signed Dillon to the uncommon four-year qualifying offer. It is a deal that can only be offered to players who have spent four seasons with one team prior to his contract expiring. Dillon can make up to roughly $2.8 million in 2024. An interesting nugget is if Green Bay were to cut him for some shocking reason, it would only cost them just over $1 million. So, this deal doesn’t have much risk, and Dillon gets to stay with the team that drafted him four years ago out of Boston College.

Dillon played behind Aaron Jones, who is now a Viking, each of the last four years. As Green Bay’s No. 2 back, he’s recorded 3,191 scrimmage yards, 18 total touchdowns, and an average yards per carry mark of 4.1 during the early part of his career. His best season came in 2021 when both he and Jones each recorded at least 1,100 scrimmage yards and seven total touchdowns. They were one of the very best backfield duos in the league over the last few years. Dillon’s familiarity with the team and love for Green Bay is why he didn’t want to go anywhere else.

Prior to losing Jones, GM Brian Gutekunst acted quickly and signed All-Pro running back Josh Jacobs to a four-year deal worth $48 million. Green Bay could also look to add a rookie running back in April’s draft. Regardless, with Jacobs and Dillon together, Matt LaFleur should have one of the best running back rooms in football again.
