1/18/2017 1:11 PM PST
The wide receiver tells TMZ Sports he just spoke with Aaron and the guy seems as laser-focused as ever. Plus, James says Rodgers has a ton of experience blocking out off-the-field drama.
Of course, the new storyline comes courtesy of Aaron's father who gave an interview to the NY Times ... discussing the family's fractured relationship with the QB.
Jones says Aaron is "in the zone" right now -- the last time he saw Aaron this focused, they won the Super Bowl.
"He's in that Michael Jordan mode."
But is Aaron the best Packers QB in franchise history? Jones weighs in.

Coco's baby daughter doesn't need any stinking floaties when she hits the beach ... not when she's got mommy!

She was definitely in perfect position for both.
Oakland Raiders 1st Round Pick Buys House for Mom
1/17/2017 10:46 AM PST
Mother's Day came in January for Karl Joseph's mom ... the Oakland Raiders rookie safety just bought her a brand new house in Florida ... TMZ Sports has confirmed.
The 14th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft was laser-focused on hookin' up his mom with something nice after he signed a 4-year $12 million deal ... and pulled the trigger when he found her dream home.
We spoke with Karl's agent, Chafie Fields, who tells us the home is in central Florida where he grew up after the family moved to the U.S. from Haiti.
"He comes from very humble beginnings," Fields says ... "Ultimately, his goal was being able to provide for his mom."
"He didn't want to buy himself a car. Didn't want to buy himself a house. He wanted to get his mom a house."
Fields says his team helped with the house hunt but ultimately Karl made the final call -- "He wanted to see the house for himself, so that's why we waited until after the season."
"He has brothers and sisters that still live at home. He wanted to do this for all of them."
Ezekiel Elliott Pumped About Cowboys Future At Dinner With Dak Prescott
1/17/2017 12:45 AM PST
Ezekiel Elliott wasn't sulking over the Cowboys heart-wrenching loss to the Packers on Sunday night ... he was PUMPED about the team's future ... Zeke's mom tells TMZ Sports.
We talked to Dawn Elliott, Zeke's mom, who says she was impressed with her son's optimism during a post-game dinner with Dak Prescott and his fam at Nick & Sam's steakhouse in Dallas.
Dawn says Zeke obviously wasn't happy with the L, but he wasn't totally crushed either ... 'cause he flat-out believes the Cowboys have a bright future.
"Zeke said the chemistry is great, and he thinks everyone is going to stick together. He thinks everyone will come back."
"They're young. They're looking forward. God willing everyone stays healthy. They'll be back."
As for people dumping on the Boys for failing to notch a playoff victory after their 13-3 season ... Dawn thinks that's nonsense.
"Good grief, the season wasn't a waste. You had 2 rookies and they won 13 games."

Paris Jackson I Wanna Make My Dad Proud!!!
1/17/2017 12:30 AM PST
Paris Jackson is a grown woman, and pretty damn impressive!
We got Michael Jackson's daughter leaving LAX Monday, where she obliquely talked about her move to conquer modeling and Hollywood.
It's pretty remarkable for someone who was once shrouded in masks, hats and anything else that could hide her from public view.
As for whether Michael would be proud ... she's banking on it.

1/15/2017 8:16 AM PST
Mike Posner's father passed away last week, and his son honored him by performing at his funeral ... after revealing the man had cancer last year on TV.
Mike's dad, Jon, died last Wednesday from his months-long battle with cancer at the age of 73 -- and Mike chose to remember him in song by covering a classic.
The singer performed Bright Eyes' "First Day Of My Life" in front of an audience Friday at the Ira Kaufman Chapel in Southfield, Michigan, where Jon was an attorney.
Back in May, Mike had alluded to his father's illness while performing on "Conan," where he changed the lyrics to his hit song "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" to ...
And my dad has cancer
I'm still wrapping my head 'round that
Sat by the hospital bed, nurses poked in their heads
And asked me to sign autographs
And my dad has cancer!
I shouldn't be here, I should be home
But in case you couldn't tell, I'm busy playing myself
In this little Mike Posner show
Nothing's cooler than that.

Kim took a lot of heat on social media for the pics. Some people thought they were just trying to look "poor" -- but we're told the pics were simply captured during a crucial moment in their lives.
