Aaron Jones reveals interesting plan for Lambeau Leap celebration
The Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau Field won’t be the same without the presence of its fans in the 2020 NFL season. The new circumstances won’t stop running back Aaron Jones from doing his famed Lambeau Leap celebration on a touchdown when they play the home-opener on September 20 against the Detroit Lions.
“You’ll definitely still see a Lambeau Leap from me, probably right on one of those tarps,” Jones said after practice on Friday, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “Just gotta pick which one, or wherever I score at or the location I’m at it’s gonna be that one. Definitely different seeing it, though, replacing the fans and just the tarp. Definitely not the Lambeau we’re used to.”
The fourth-year running back was able to perform the celebration for the most part of last season. He was hailed as the 2019 NFL rushing touchdowns co-leader with a total of 16 scores, 11 of which came on their home turf.
Jones kept the momentum from last season and remained to be an integral part of the Packers’ offense during their first game against division rival Minnesota Vikings. He ran a total of 66 rushing yards on 16 carries and contributed a touchdown for his team. The visiting Packers went on to dominate the Vikings on a 43-34 outcome to grab their first win of the season.
A huge chunk of the team’s scoring attack will still rely on the 25-year old player as he continues to serve as one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ most reliable options. Aaron Jones will aim to have a good outing on Sunday as he tries to lead the Packers to their second win of the season.
