Aaron Jones Makes the Pro Bowl for the First Time
For Aaron Jones, 2020 has been an interesting season for sure. His Green Bay Packers have the record record in the NFC at 11-3 and quarterback Aaron Rodgers has the inside track to wining the NFL Most Valuable Player award. Showtyme is currently fourth in the league in rushing with 968 yards and he is averaging 5.4 yards per carry. All of that hard work has paid off when he was announced as a member of the NFC's Pro Bowl roster for the first time in his career.
The 26-year old is just 32 yards away from his second consecutive 1,000-yard season and he has rushed for at least 130 yards in two of his last three games. The Pro Bowl rosters were voted on by the players, coaches, and fans. Unfortunately, the game, originally scheduled for January 31st in Las Vegas was canceled due to COVID. However, there will be a virtual Pro Bowl game, with players selected to the contest playing Madden NFL 21.
CBS4's Lou Romano spoke with Alvin Jones Sr. and the longtime sports director tweeted that "Aaron shares this with all of El Paso, the city he loves."
