EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Green Bay Packers running back and El Paso’s own, Aaron Jones, has been selected to the 2021 NFL Pro Bowl, the league announced on Monday. This is Jones’ first Pro Bowl selection after a notable snub in 2020.

In the NFC, Jones is joined by Vikings running back Dalvin Cook and Saints running back Alvin Kamara. He is one of seven Packers players to be selected to this year’s Pro Bowl, This marks the most original selections for Green Bay since seven were picked in 2011. The six starter selections are the most since the Packers had eight in 1967, Vince Lombardi’s final year as head coach.

Jones, who is in the final year of his contract with the Packers, has rushed for 968 yards and eight touchdowns. He has also tallied 298 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

The El Paso native was selected by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL draft. Jones starred at Burges High School and played his college football across the street for the UTEP Miners before being drafted by Green Bay.
