WR Greg Jennings a Viking in 2013...

Post by A.D_blazing » Wed Sep 05, 2012 10:38 am

Here's what Rodgers had to say about Jennings not being a Packers next year. It looks like they won't be able to retain Jennings because of Rodgers next contract

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... rs-future/
“I think you have to be realistic about it and think that it might be. I have loved my time with Greg, Greg and I are going to be buddies whether he’s here or not,” Rodgers said, via ESPNWisconsin.com. “It’s been great throwing to him, but there’s a lot of guys who may or may not get paid the next few years, and obviously with Jordy (Nelson) and his contract situation, I think you have to think about whether or not there’s room for all of us. If there’s not, obviously you wish Greg the best. He’s a great guy and will be a great friend.”
I think the vikings has the money to sign Jennings in 2013,and it would be a great addition..Jennings,Simpson(if re-signed),Percy & Rudolph would be a sick line-up.

Let me know what you guys think.

Rodgers: "Hey, we're great friends, but if it's between me and you getting paid big, well, it's been nice knowing you."

A$$hole.

I don't think it makes him a jerk

a player career is short and he wants to get his full value..

I think it would be wiser for him to not voice that statement
until after the season but his choice.

Except Rodgers already has one big extension that he is getting paid for.

Greg Jennings - WR - Packers

Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes the Packers would be "wise" to shop contract-year receiver Greg Jennings ahead of October's trade deadline.

McGinn is perhaps the most respected beat writer in the country, and we wouldn't be at all surprised if GM Ted Thompson read his every written word. McGinn is "convinced" 2012 is Jennings' final year in Green Bay, and he'd fetch far more via trade than James Jones or Donald Driver. Per McGinn, extension talks with Jennings' agent have "gone nowhere," and "bringing back Jennings just isn't in the cards." McGinn suggests Jennings may target Larry Fitzgerald money ($16.1M annually), a figure the Packers can't afford. They might be able to get a high second-round pick from a receiver-desperate team like the Dolphins.

Jennings is great but he will want 50-60 million contract or more and at 30 that is a heck of a lot

Too injury prone and will want a lot of money, not worth it in my opinion.

Julio Jones is on hold. Heck, even Jordy Nelson is nipping on his heels.
