AJ Dillon Looking to "Play Free" and Remain with Packers
June 16, 2023
Green Bay Packers running back, AJ Dillon, is not one to shy away from admitting his areas of improvement. Packers' running backs coach, Ben Sirmans, shared this offseason that Dillon lacked consistency during the 2022 season, a sentiment that Dillon agrees with. Though he doesn't view it as a "bad year", he acknowledges that it wasn't the year he hoped for or one he's capable of having. Although Dillon acknowledged that this particular year wasn't his best, he is determined to use it as fuel for personal growth and strive for improvement.
Dillon's performance struggles in the previous season were partly influenced by the pressure he felt, especially with the impending arrival of his first child. He acknowledges playing with a restrictive mindset, hindering his ability to reach his full potential. However, as he nears the final year of his contract, Dillon is determined to adopt a more liberated approach to his game.
When discussing his love for Green Bay and the Packers, Dillon remarks, "I'd play here until I can't run anymore." He understands that there are only certain things he can control, and one of them is his mindset. His biggest goal is to come in and continue doing his thing, playing free and having fun—how he used to back in college and high school. Whether it's 1,000 yards, 2,000 yards, or 100 yards, Dillon is determined to enjoy his time in Green Bay and make the most of his opportunities.
Dillon has undeniably become an embraced member of the Green Bay community. Unlike numerous other Packers' players, he chose to remain in Green Bay throughout the entire year, even tying the knot in his cherished Door County, Wisconsin. He loves the Green Bay community, and they love him back.
It's clear that Dillion is focusing on his mindset and striving for improvement in the upcoming season. Will it pay off? Only time will tell. But one thing is for sure: AJ Dillon is sticking around in Green Bay for now and is determined to make the most of his time as a Packer.
