Reading the offseason tea leaves is always dangerous, but there have been signs that the Packers plan to make Jones their undisputed lead back.

Among them was new head coach Matt LaFleur saying he intends to “marry the run with the pass.” And early returns from the team’s outside-zone heavy rushing scheme indicate Jones is the better fit than teammate Jamaal Williams.

The one cause for concern is LaFleur’s history of utilizing committee backfields. He said that Jones and Williams would each be involved in the offense back in February. But Jones could still be among the league’s most-fed backs with an average snap rate around 70%. Ian Hartitz
