Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings has had a busy offseason thus far. He was in Indianapolis for the Super Bowl last week, making appearances, partying, and getting his picture taken with B and C-level celebrities. Today, he was in Washington, getting in the ear of some politicians.
Jennings and NFL Players Association attorney Joe Briggs met with at least two Congressmen. From what we can gather, the conversation was the Greg Jennings Foundation.
Jennings had meetings with Rep. Fred Upton from his home state of Michigan and Sen. John Thune of South Dakota. He also took a photo with some idiot Minnesota Vikings fans, according to Briggs, who tweeted this message with the group photo below.
And even though the staff was filled with Vikings fans they still wanted a group shot with @GregJennings
Of course they did. They had no idea what a real receiver looked like before today.
More importantly, does this mean Greg is eyeing a future in politics? We thought he wanted to be an actor.
Jennings for president! (After he n Rodgers win another sb of course)
Good for him. Though I hope he and Rodgers are still into football a little bit.
Makes me wonder if all of the attention, notoriety and celebrity that comes with success aren’t going to be major distractions that these players as individuals and the organization as a whole are going to have to learn to deal with to remain a cohesive and dedicated group committed to winning championships.
Hey Greg, you did have a Packer fan in John Thunes staff my daughter Rachel who you gave an autograph is a big Packers fan. You would be amazed at how many people in South Dakota are Packers fans.And would you blame them the Vikings stink. But alot of us are die hard Parkers fans including myself who has been a fan when Aman Greene played for the team. The Packers are the best team in the NFL.
