Greg Jennings rumors indicate he could head to the Minnesota Viking or re-sign with the Green Bay Packers. Jennings seems to most want a big pay raise, though, indicating that he would likely be open to signing with any team that is willing to give him a nice salary bump. Late Tuesday night (March 12), a report from ESPN stated that the Vikings might not have as much interest as originally thought.
Writer Tom Pelissero took to Twitter to state that, "I'm told the #Vikings are NOT actively pursuing Greg Jennings right now. Of course, that level of activity can change." He would elaborate on that reasoning later, stating that, "Word is Greg Jennings is still hoping for Mike Wallace money. #Vikings aren't playing that game. Maybe when the price comes (way) down."
It has been widely reported that the Packers have an offer out to Jennings at around $10 million per season, which would come in just under the $65 million over five years that the Miami Dolphins offered Wallace in free agency. With the market dwindling for teams looking for a big-time wide receiver, it seems that the bargaining power for Jennings may almost be gone.
Last season for the Green Bay Packers, Greg Jennings caught 36 passes for 366 yards and four touchdowns. Is entire season was marred by injury, but he was strong in a Week 17 game against the Vikings when he posted 8 catches for 120 yards and two touchdowns. It's clear that Jennings is ready to put up big numbers again, but there are no succinct rumors for where he will do that in the 2013 NFL season just yet.
