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.
I wonder just how much Jennings regrets going the direction he did. He was well on his way to a very nice career.
Now he’ll largely be remembered as “the guy who scored two TDs for the Packers in that Super Bowl.”
We all know his contributions to the team were greater than just that, but what an epic fall from grace and not the way to cement a legacy.
Hows that extra 1 mill a year from the vikings treated you now Greg? It’s too bad though he seemed like a great guy on the Packers, but I guess he really had an ego.
I figured Greg’s head was inflated enough to carry him anywhere he wanted to go.
Plenty of hot air though
RIP Graeg Jenkins
What idiot Thompson was for not resigning that guy.
Let’s see, the Packers need a wide receiver who can get separation- unlike Adams, is fast-unlike Jones, and experienced-unlike Janis.
Regular Logic: Bring back Jennings for 1-2 years for the minimum, with huge incentives. TT Logic: Jennings annoys me and my rigid,
tight ass mind, and he’s over 30. Nothing must upset my “system”
or my anal, narrow approach to personnel.
I would much rather put Montgomery on the field over Greg Jennings for the packers. Ted Hawthorne, are you an idiot? Regular Logic: Put a better reciever on the field than Adams, Jones, Jennings and Janis.
I bet Total TMZ Packers shit smells like roses.
Right? Fire Thompson!!
“mouthes?” But yeah. . . typo aside, the people calling for the Packers to sign Jennings are idiots. Receiver is one of our deepest positions, nay, ’tis THE deepest position.
LOL dude said, “Greg Jenkins.” I think we might need to do something crazy this year and draft the best WR available with our first round pick. We have an elite TE, returning from injury elite WR, let’s just go over the top and get another elite WR. I know there are other holes to fill (including your mom’s – lol) but sometimes you just have to do things differently than everyone thinks you should.
one thing these players don’t realize. when they take $1 milion more to live a large city like MPLS or Miami or Atlanta or Denver or Dallas……..the cost of living is a lot higher than GB. Unless you play in a state with no income tax, you get much better bang for your buck in GB, plus you are on a good team with a great QB. Sucks huh Greg?

I love this website !
Jennings burnt a lot of bridges on his way out of town. No way he comes back. I am silently laughing to myself at this fact.
While the Vikings are probably my most hated team (besides perhaps the patriots), I have no issue with the state of Minnesota. It is actually a really cool state that I enjoy spending time in, especially in the northern half by Ely. Minneapolis is a fun place too with a great beer scene. Green bay is definitely a more boring place, except of course during football season. And when the walleye bite is on in the bay.
We have an elite tight end? Get the fuck out of here. Draft a WR 1st? Put the meth pipe down you ignorant mother fucker.
I heard he would still be in Greenbay but he refused to marry a family member or any livestock
“Nobody misses being in Minnesota.”?
Who wants to be in Green Bay?
Clowns…..or wait cheese heads…..
Your mother was in GB last night. 5th best $2 handys I’ve seen this year.
