The Greg Jennings era with the Green Bay Packers appeared to be coming to an end once the 2012 NFL season was officially in the books for the storied NFL franchise. The team expressed little interest in re-signing the veteran wideout due to the high price tag, but now the Minnesota Vikings have made him a primary target sparking the Packers’ interest once again according to Fox Sports’ Alex Marvez as of March 12:
A source told FOXSports.com that the Vikings and the Packers have expressed interest in signing Jennings now that he is an unrestricted free agent.
Apparently, the Packers were always interested in bringing Jennings back in the fold despite having a young and talented receiving corps led by Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and James Jones.
With Jennings thought to be asking anywhere from $12 to $14 million per season in free agency, the Packers seemed willing to pass on the veteran wideout and for good reason considering the talent under contract at wide receiver.
As for the Vikings, Minnesota is trying to find a viable replacement for the recently traded Percy Harvin. Jennings definitely fits the bill to replace Harvin, but it remains to be seen if the team will be offering enough to lure the veteran away from Green Bay.
