Powerful Packers Running Back AJ Dillon Becomes Strong Receiver, Too


GREEN BAY, Wis. – At 250 pounds and with quads the size of redwoods, AJ Dillon is a running back.

Last season, he led the Green Bay Packers with 803 rushing yards. More than just a battering ram, Dillon emerged as one of the most reliable and effective pass-catching backs in the NFL. While they have vastly different styles, the dual-threat abilities of Dillon and co-pilot Aaron Jones are going to be a critical part of how the Packers adjust to life without Davante Adams.

“Let me just highlight the mayor of Door County,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said a few days ago. “When he came in here, he was a big back we expected to be able to run power really well. Of all the people we’ve had the last three years, he’s got to be on a very short list of guys who have improved so drastically.
