Pretty soon, you’ll see Greg Jennings standing on the side of a freeway offramp holding a sign that says, “Will Play for Food.”
That’s pretty much what it’s come down to.
Jennings has lost his job the past two offseasons, getting cut by the Minnesota Vikings in 2015 and by the Miami Dolphins in 2016.
There was little interest in Jennings in 2015 and there’s even less this time around. In fact, interest in Jennings’ services appear to be nonexistent.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Jennings has actually called the Vikings to see if they’d bring him back.
“I left (general manager) Rick (Spielman) a voicemail,” Jennings said. “I told (them), I’m waiting on you guys.”
“I miss being (in Minnesota). You appreciate something more when it’s taken away from you.”
Nobody misses being in Minnesota.
You would have to pay a normal human being to spend any time there. And in this case, that’s what Jennings is asking — pay me to come back to Minnesota.
We guess that’s what you do when no one else will employ you and you’ve got mouthes to feed.
The Vikings did release another receiver, Mike Wallace, earlier this offseason. In true Vikings’ form, they signed Wallace last offseason to replace Jennings.
So those morons couldn’t even get that right.
We doubt Jennings is going to get a call back, though. Here’s a guy who caught just 19 balls for 208 yards in 2015.
It certainly looks like we’ve got another forced retirement on our hands here. Jennings just doesn’t want to admit it.
