Earlier this offseason, Pro Bowl running back Aaron Jones became the latest player to trade in his atrocious green and gold Green Bay Packers uniform for an impeccable Minnesota Vikings jersey.

Jones spent each of his first seven seasons in the NFL as a member of the Packers, and based on a recent tweet, it doesn't seem like some members of the Green Bay fan base are over his departure.

Aaron Jones responds to Green Bay Packers fans claiming he's unhappy with Minnesota Vikings

After the above post was shared online, Jones responded a few hours later with a tweet of his own that featured a photo of him enjoying his new life as a member of the Vikings.

Jones certainly has plenty to be happy about now that he's with Minnesota. With the Vikings next season, he's going to be the top option in the team's offensive backfield, he'll get to play with the best wide receiver in the NFL, and he'll have at least two opportunities to get revenge on Green Bay for releasing him earlier this year.

Minnesota's first matchup against the Packers next season will take place in Week 4 in Green Bay. Then, in Week 17, Jones and the Vikings will host the Packers inside U.S. Bank Stadium for a divisional showdown.

After Green Bay released Jones this offseason for essentially not wanting to take a major pay cut, motivation is something that he will not be lacking in the 2024 campaign when he steps on the field as an opponent of the Packers for the first time in his career.

Jones missed six games during the 2023 regular season for Green Bay due to multiple injuries, but he still managed to generate 1,136 total yards and six touchdowns in the 13 matchups he appeared in (including the playoffs).

Still, the Packers clearly didn't think he was worth what he was scheduled to make for the 2024 season, so they moved on from him when he refused to take a significant pay cut earlier this year.

When that first showdown in Green Bay happens in Week 4 next season, Jones should have plenty of opportunities to prove to his former team that he is worth every penny that they didn't want to pay him and more.
