When Jones was asked as to how it felt to receive the ball from someone of Rodgers’ pedigree, the running back said that given the latter’s throwing prowess, one at times simply has to turn around to make a catch.

“Sometimes all you have to do is turn and the ball’s right there sitting on your numbers. I’ve had a couple of catches, where I’ve been like, ‘How did I catch that?’ So he in a way caught that for me. All I had to do was turn. So he makes the game easier,” Jones said.

“Rodgers understands (the game), he also helps you develop your game. Not only as a running back, but also as a receiver, we’re learning about those back shoulder throws. So he’s helping us develop our game,” he added.
